Seagate Technology, a global leader in data storage solutions collaborates with CyArk, an international non-profit organization with an objective to digitally preserve the Gateway of India. However, digital scanning and archiving of the historic arch monument already begun with data and images from the field exercise being turned into photo-real 3D models for future generations of students, tourists and cultural heritage enthusiasts to experience the site virtually anytime and anywhere.

CyArk selected the Gateway of India after conducting aerial surveys with drones, terrestrial laser scanning known as LiDAR, and photogrammetry exercises. CyArk will also provide 3D models and architectural drawings, which will help to monitor the monument’s surface for any future changes in its condition. Seagate supports CyArk with its data storage solutions such as the LaCie® Rugged® Thunderbolt™ USB-C SSD, DJI Copilot, 2big Dock Thunderbolt™ 3, and Seagate’s Nytro® SSD, BarraCuda® Pro 10TB, as well as other high capacity, high performance drives.

We are grateful for Seagate’s support to complete our first project together in India. The Gateway of India is one of the most iconic landmarks in Mumbai and our digital documentation work will provide site managers with the tools they need to ensure the longevity of this incredible place,
