In a bid to preserve the cultural heritage and archaeological data about the Gateway of India, Seagate Technology has partnered with CyArk, an international non-profit dedicated to scanning and preserving similar monuments around the world. The scanning and archiving activity has started a couple of days ago and has already resulted in a lot of data and images being stored on Seagate drives. The scan data could potentially be turned into photo-real 3D models for students, tourists and heritage enthusiasts to explore the Gateway of India digitally. VR experiences like the ones on MasterWorksVR, a VR app for the HTC Vive, Oculus Go and Rift developed by CyArk that lets people visit heritage sites in VR. Whether the same will be possible for the Gateway of India is unknown at the moment.
