Stonewall Monument Preserved In “3D Digital Record”

Fascinating project. Via press release:

CyArk, a heritage preservation non-profit, has completed the first ever 3D digital record of the Stonewall National Monument in New York, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.

The project — the first of its kind to detail an LGBTQ historic site and national monument — uses data to create a photorealistic digital record of Christopher Park and the Stonewall Inn. This experiential record will aid in the preservation of the national monument and make these historic sites accessible to visitors across the globe, for generations to come.

The CyArk 3D recording will be incorporated into a virtual reality experience that foregrounds the history of the Stonewall Uprising and enables virtual visitors to learn about the event’s significance in the LGBTQ rights movement.

“The data collected will be used to create a powerful backdrop that immerses people visually in the history of the Stonewall uprising, and engages a new generation who may not be able to make the journey to New York to visit the Stonewall National Monument,” said John Ristevski, CEO of CyArk.CyArk, a heritage preservation non-profit, has completed the first ever 3D digital record of the Stonewall National Monument in New York, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.
