Using 3D Modeling to Map the Atlantic Slave Trade

From Engineering.com: Using 3D modeling to map the Atlantic slave trade. “The project’s goal is to create digital models of 10 cultural heritage sites, spread across western Africa and the Americas, using 3D point clouds generated by LiDAR and photogrammetry technology. These models will then be placed into a free online library for public access, much like the Smithsonian’s X 3D program.” This is another project of CyArk, which I mentioned earlier this week.
