The city of Babylon is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. Located alongside the Euphrates River in modern-day Iraq, its monumental ruins recall the history of Mesopotamia, the ancient Near East, and the Biblical Old Testament, nestled in the region that is considered the cradle of civilization.
In the winter of 2009, the World Monuments Fund invited CyArk to digitally document the Ishtar Gate and Nabu-Sha-Khari Temple in Babylon in order to produce an accurate record of their current condition. CyArk partnered with Germany-based Christofori und Partner to complete the laser scanning and HDR photography capture. During the field documentation, the process also included the introduction of the technology to the staff of the Iraq State Board of Heritage and Antiquities.
