Historical Documentation at Its Finest
CyArk is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Oakland, California. Its mission is to document the world’s heritage sites in 3D. CyArk was founded because its founders, Ben and Barbara Kacyra, were deeply impacted by the Taliban’s destruction of the Buddhas in Afghanistan in 2001. Anyone who has experienced the horrors of war is keenly aware of the fragility of historical treasures. CyArk uses 3D imaging technology to create a digital museum of the world’s historical sites.
