The Palmyra Augmented Reality Experience
During the Syrian conflict, the magnificent archaeological monuments of Palmyra, an important historical and cultural site for the people of Syria, have been damaged or destroyed. In an effort to reconstruct what has been destroyed and conserve what is left, the volunteers of the #NewPalmyra project are rebuilding this city’s history in an online database by using crowdsourced photos to help construct 3D models of Palmyra’s monuments.
Through VizworX’s Augmented Reality experience app, Palmyra, users can experience 3D representations of these monuments in their full glory and help keep a rich and vibrant part of Syria’s history and culture alive.
