Bagan - Discover a Site at Risk

The ancient city of Bagan was once home to over 3,000 Buddhist temples, stupas, and monasteries. Many of these structures have been damaged or destroyed by the earthquakes that rock the region. -- Digital conservation is helping the local community to restore some of the most damanged temple. Using drone imagery, photogrammetry, laser scanning and 360 video, we're preserving a lasting legacy for Bagan.
