CyArk is partnering with Phase One to capture, process, render and preserve cultural history with unprecedented visual accuracy. Phase One is providing CyArk with its 100 Megapixel XF Camera System and Capture One software which together offer higher detail and greater accuracy of colour and texture, as CyArk documents every surface of a building. CyArk has kicked off this partnership with a project at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed between the British Crown and the indigenous Maori people in 1840, considered the most significant historic site in New Zealand. The Phase One XF Camera System was used to capture the intricate Maori carvings on the site, as well as other culturally significant pieces of art and performance. The data captured will be used to create accurate architectural drawings and plans which will support the nomination of the site for UNESCO World Heritage status.
