"RealityCapture has, for the first time, allowed us to combine the accuracy of LiDAR with the detail and color of photogrammetry to create high resolution, high accuracy models of cultural heritage sites. The creation of accurate models and high resolution ortho-tiffs is essential for the work we do in supporting active conservation at cultural heritage sites, and the 3D models are also the foundation for Virtual Reality experiences like the MasterWorks VR app we launched earlier this year.“

Zamani: Preserving Sri Lanka's heritage
The Zamani team uses RealityCapture to document and preserve cultural heritage around the world. This time they took us to Sri Lanka to preserve ancient ruins protected by UNESCO.
The following tutorial covers how to create a 3D environment from drone images in RealityCapture to provide a context for a house or a building design and how to create a final visualization in Lumion software.
Combining drones, laser scans and photogrammetric rigs for mapping, and providing detailed documentation to assist in the active conservation. Read about how CyArk helped with the reconstruction of Bagan.
Factum Foundation used RealityCapture to create a facsimile of the tomb of Seti I, which is now exhibited in Antikenmuseum in Basel, Switzerland. This is the first time since its rediscovery that the tomb can be seen as a complete exhibition.
Today, the world's architectural heritage is disappearing rapidly. Armed conflicts, urban expansion, natural disasters and terrorist acts severely threaten the vestiges of our past. Iconem was founded on a refusal to lose forever this evidence of our shared history.
