With your photos we will build a digital Ark.
If you have digital photo collections of important and/or endangered archaeological sites, works or art, ancient cities or other treasures of the ancient world (published on sites like Instagram, Picasa, Flickr, etc.), take a closer look and consider whether they may be used to aid our process of digital archiving in order to create 3D models, thus protecting against complete loss in worst case scenarios.

ALREADY HAVE PHOTOS TO SHARE?
In some cases we can even use pre-existing photos to do photogrammetry on objects and archaeological sites. Look through your photo collections—there may be a lost treasure there just waiting to come alive again.
LEARN HOW TO SHOOT AND UPLOAD NEW PHOTOS!
On this website, you will find the necessary information to teach you the basics of photographing for photogrammetry-based digital reconstruction in 3-D.
When examining your photo archives, try to determine whether they were shot with a single lens length (if they were done on a smartphone this is most likely the case). If, however, they were shot with a digital camera you can determine the lens length by going into the metadata which is recorded with each image. By looking at all of the photos in a line you can tell whether they were shot with the same lens length. Photos can be shot at any lens length but having multiple photos shot with the same lens setting is important for each photogrammetry solve.
