CyArk Collaborates With Faro on Conservation and Measurement

OAKLAND, Calif. — 3D measurement and imaging technology developer Faro Technologies Inc. is collaborating with CyArk, a non-profit organization dedicated to recording, archiving and sharing the world’s cultural heritage, for laser scanning solutions.

CyArk’s activities involve the rapid and detailed recording of monuments around the world; laser scanning is at the forefront of tools used to record accurate geometry of these surfaces. Many of these projects are time critical, and the efficiency of Faro solutions will enable the CyArk field teams to capture and operate more effectively. CyArk will leverage Faro’s integrated 3D capture and analysis platform including the Focus Laser Scanner, SCENE and PointSense Software, and in-depth training for field staff.

The seamless production of specific deliverables for managers of sites and monuments will be a significant benefit through the use of PointSense Heritage, a software package specifically designed for the production of high-resolution documentation of historic buildings and archaeological sites.

CyArk has kicked off the partnership at the site of Bagan in Myanmar, which suffered a devastating earthquake in August 2016. Faro Focus Laser Scanners were used to accurately record surface geometry of several monuments, and the data will be used to generate engineering drawings in support of active conservation and stabilization efforts at the site.

“We are thrilled to have industry leader Faro join CyArk as a sustaining partner,” said John Ristevski, CEO of CyArk. “Accurate 3D capture from lidar is the cornerstone of CyArk’s method, and with Faro hardware and software solutions, we very much look forward to equipping our field and production teams with the best tools to fuel our mission.”

Faro develops and markets portable coordinate measuring machines and 3D imaging devices to solve dimensional metrology problems. CyArk provides engineering drawings and detailed maps to assist in conservation work and active management.
