The World Monuments Fund has announced that it –

…has entered into an exciting partnership with Google to provide content for the World Wonders Project, a new cultural digitization platform announced in Madrid on May 31. More than 130 places are featured on the World Wonders website, including more than two dozen sites where WMF has worked.

The World Wonders Project offers panoramic views of many culturally significant sites supplemented by photographs, 3-D models, YouTube videos, and information. The potential for this project is huge, allowing for anyone anywhere in the world with an internet connection access to some of the world’s great places and the ability to learn more about them.

This project is also an excellent educational resource for both students and scholars, and this value will increase as more sites are added. If you haven’t yet explored the World Wonders website, please do!
