As a non-profit, CyArk is a recipient of free licenses for SketchUp Pro through Google's SketchUp for Nonprofits
program. Google's SketchUp team recently approached us to write a blog about how we utilize their 3D modeling software toward our mission of digital preservation, education, and dissemination.
The resulting blog Modeling cultural heritage sites with SketchUp Pro
was published on the official SketchUp blog
on Thursday, March 8, 2012.
The blog outlines our use of SketchUp to create 3D models of the missions of San Antonio, Texas as part of our Digital Preservation of San Antonio Missions National Historical Park
project with the US National Park Servcice
. We discuss how we utilize the results in the website as interactive models in both our online 3D viewer
as well as the foundation of our 3D interface for navigating the mission sites in Google Earth
and viewing multimedia directly in our 3D website.
