3-D technology for modern-day monuments men (and women)

In response to Nazi-sponsored raids of cultural treasures during World War II, the US government organized the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program to help identify the locations of and protect these looted works. Today, a modern-day version of this program—protecting internationally treasured heritage sites around the world—is the focus of a number of private efforts, including perhaps most prominently the World Monuments Fund. This researcher in Florida is using 3-D technology to help study and virtually restore the famous site of Babylon in modern-day Iraq, a project supported in part by WMF.
