Project ANQA

Launched in June 2015 by CyArk and ICOMOS (International Council of Monuments and Sites), Project Anqa was created for the emergency recording of high risk heritage in the Middle East and North Africa. Named for the Arabic word for the phoenix, the bird that rises from the ashes, the initiative is designed to deploy teams of international professionals paired with local experts to document cultural heritage sites in 3D before they are damaged or entirely destroyed.
