Ukraine’s cultural heritage sites are being recognised as the second casualty of Russia’s invasion. A new project is using 3D technology to digitally preserve them and archive Ukraine’s collective memory.
A collaboration between the Danish UNESCO National Commission, Blue Shield Denmark and Polycam, a leading 3D scanning application, the project encourages people in Ukraine to install the application, and use their mobile phones to scan nearby cultural sites and artefacts, creating a three-dimensional digital replica.
These 3D scans are then uploaded into a publicly accessible digital archive, capturing a detailed copy of the heritage object, before it’s too late.
