Creating a Digital Archive of the World's Heritage Sites for Preservation and Education

Permalink This week our partners at University Colorado, Denver’s Center of Preservation Research documented Independence Rock in Wyoming. It is part of the Oregon, California, and Mormon emigrant trails West and is covered in graffiti of names and dates from travelers passing by the trail landmark. It will be the second site of the OR/CA/Mormon Trails to be digitally preserved by CyArk and our partners; the first was Fort Laramie, WY. The digital preservation project is in partnership with the US National Park Service.
