University of Miami: Dec 20, 2017- Virtual Wonders team members Corey Jaskolski and Kenny Broad are collaborators – in the air and underwater – on a project involving the U.S. National Park Service, University of Miami, and the National Geographic Society to test a new approach to identifying historic shipwrecks by combining cutting edge aerial surveys with underwater 3-D imaging technology. This approach has the potential to revolutionize our ability to identify and characterize submerged cultural resource management on a large scale.

National Geographic: September 13, 2017- A National Geographic Magazine news article features our work in Chichen Itza where we are digitizing the entire archaeological site. “In the end, we’ll be able to combine data from these imaging tools and produce a millimeter-scale, 3D ‘super map’ of the entire site, above and below the ground,” says engineer Corey Jaskolski, a National Geographic Fellow who is leading the digital preservation project.
