How your pictures can help reclaim lost history
Digital archaeologist Chance Coughenour is using pictures -- your pictures -- to reclaim antiquities that have been lost to conflict and disaster. After crowdsourcing photographs of destroyed monuments, museums and artifacts, Coughenour uses advanced technology called photogrammetry to create 3D reconstructions, preserving the memory of our global, shared, human heritage. Find out more about how you can help celebrate and safeguard history that's being lost.
Participate in Rekrei, a crowdsourced project to collect photographs of monuments, museums and artefacts damaged by natural disasters or human intervention, and to use those data to create 3D representations and help to preserve our heritage.
