Founded in 2013 and active in 21 countries, Iconem’s mission is to further conservation of the world’s endangered cultural heritage sites by digitising them in 3D for exploration and study, today and tomorrow. Our expert team travels the globe, leveraging the largescale scanning capacity of drones and the photorealistic quality of 3D, to record sites that are imperilled by looting, urbanisation, mass tourism, armed conflict, and climate change. Iconem works with international organisations and world class museums such as UNESCO and the Louvre. Our 3D models and training for local professionals facilitate the critical conservation and restoration work of cultural heritage experts. Our digital content curated for museum exhibitions immerses visitors in the treasured sites that represent the wealth of our planet’s cultural heritage. The result of Iconem’s partnerships with INRIA and Microsoft Research, our AI-based technology and computer vision algorithms have enabled us to become the leader in the photorealistic 3D digitisation of cultural heritage sites.
