Lieca N. Hohner, Chief Editor at Spar Point Research wrote a glowing editorial about the combined efforts of the National Parks Service, Historic Scotland, and CyArk at Mount Rushmore.

"The agreement deserves applause for a number of reasons. One, it provides work—monumental work, shall I say—to local contractors. Rapid City, S.D.-based Wyss Associates and RESPEC Engineering, along with the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, will work with the National Park Service (Mount Rushmore’s parent), CyArk and Scottish teams to digitally preserve Mount Rushmore. Two, it is yet another example of how savvy industry leaders and equally savvy site overseers see and implement the power of 3D laser scanning technology for preservation efforts—our hats off to these blazers!"
