CyArk operates internationally as a non-profit organization with the mission of using new technologies to create a free, 3D online library of the world’s cultural heritage sites before they are lost to natural disasters, destroyed by human aggression or ravaged by the passage of time. The subjects included in this series are; Archeology, Architecture, U.S. History, World History and Historic Preservation.
