CyArk has used the latest in 3D technology to capture the historic remains of t he three sites. Working in partnership with the National Park Service and independent researchers\, CyArk used historic information and its own rece ntly captured 3D data to develop comprehensive historic models of the thre e camps. Each camp was digitally reconstructed to include the unique eleme nts of each site\, including gardens and other landscape features.\n &nbsp \; \n CyArk's presentation will explain the process used to develop the mo dels\, including an explanation of the latest technology used in the proje ct. The presentation will feature a live demonstration of the models and v arious interpretive elements soon available to the public.
