CyArk is an international non-profit organization that is using new technologies to create a "free, 3D online library of the world's cultural heritage sites." Readers might like to begin by watching Ben Kacyra's TED Talk, which describes the organization's process of capturing ancient wonders with a groundbreaking 3D scanning system, and can be linked to from the homepage. Perhaps the most exciting section of the site can be found under Projects. Here, for instance, readers may examine a three dimensional digital model of the Eastern Qing Tombs, the 18th century imperial burial place of several important Qing and Ming Dynasty emperors, or take a digital tour of Mount Rushmore. In addition, the Education tab, with its 37 fully developed lesson plans, can be especially useful to teachers who are designing units around ancient archaeology or modern architecture. The site works best with Internet Explorer, however it is also compatible with browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
