Today, advancements in 3D capture technology provide an improved opportunity to digitally preserve a communities heritage and history at a scale that has never been available before.
It also allows for the granularity that has been cost prohibitive until very recently. Many historical buildings, churches, court houses, community centers, statues, town squares, historical homes, and the everyday places where a nation’s history is formed can now be preserved.
While the technology is there it is still a race against time. Some popular historical sites and structures have dedicated resources to preserve their history, many more local sites are at risk if we do not take advantage of the technological opportunities and benefits.
