Pompeii exemplifies CyArk, a project of the Kacyra Family Foundation that is preserving the world's most valued cultural heritage sites in three-dimensional digital form. Buried in A.D. 79 beneath a thick mantle of volcanic deposits by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, much of Pompeii has been uncovered, only to decay steadily from natural and human causes. This video shows how CyArk is preserving the site in digital imagery through laser-scanning technology and the most accurate 3D models possible today.
