Have you been busy scanning Heritage Sites in 2015? CyArk would love to help showcase your work and make it a part of the CyArk Archive.

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Data Donation Drive in conjunction with the 500 Annual Summit. The Annual Summit is a great opportunity to connect with other scanning professionals, researchers and industry representatives. All Donations received before Tuesday, September 1 will be eligible.

CyArk’s Archive is made up of data sets from our network of partners including, service providers, AEC firms and university researchers. To celebrate those who have donated data to our archive as well as engage new Data Donation participants, CyArk is inviting all Data Donation Partners to attend the Summit for free. We will also be raffling free tickets to the VIP dinner and one (1) booth at the 500 Annual Summit among other prizes. The winners will be selected on Friday, September 4.

All Donations will be considered for inclusion in the CyArk 500 Challenge. Any selected will be recognized during the conference opening on October 20. All those participating will retain ownership of the data and receive a partner page on the CyArk website. Your data will be professionally archived for research and posterity on our 2 petabyte archive hosted by Iron Mountain.

All Data Donation Partners are invited to join us for a special cocktail reception on the evening of October 20 at the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.

Donating Data from past project is a great (and easy!) way to contribute to heritage preservation and bring publicity to your work and a favorite site. Consider sharing one of your favorites with the world by partnering with CyArk!
