Fire engulfed the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on Monday. Threats to historical places are becoming more common, according National Geographic. But, with the help from technology, there is a way to prepare for those threats.
Google Arts & Culture celebrated World Heritage Day on Thursday, and they expanded their Open Heritage project. The project will digitally preserve historical sites online, according to Mashable. In partnership with another organization, digital 3D renderings, virtual tours and other historical site data are available in a Google Arts & Culture network.
While the data can enable restoration of historical and unique places, it will also allow people to explore a landmark on their own from any device.
