What other sites / organizations are doing similar things?

The CENOBIUM Project

"CENOBIUM (Cultural Electronic Network Online: Binding up Interoperably Usable Multimedia) is a multimedia presentation of Romanesque cloister capitals from the Mediterranean region. High-resolution digital photographs, 3-D models, and panoramas will virtually link the capitals to their original surroundings, thus representing them within their original architectural and conceptual contexts."

The British Museum

The British Museum is posting 3D models on Sketchfab allowing users to download and 3D print models of some of their most famous pieces. 

The Creation of Gothic Architecture

"The Creation of Gothic Architecture (COGA) Project explores the emergence of the Gothic style through analysis of nearly 1600 buildings in the greater Paris Basin constructed all or in part between 1060 and 1250... The on-site survey of these buildings yields a variety of resources, from handwritten notes to panoramic photographs."

Moissac 3D

Moissac 3D is part of the Clunypedia website, an encyclopedia of Cluniac sites. The project offers 3D models of many of the capitals from one of the most famous cloisters in medieval art history.

The Immersive Imagery Project

"The purpose of the Immersive Imagery Project is to create a resource for teachers of art and architectural history which includes high-resolution, zoomable images of important monuments, as well as immersive panoramic imagery of building sites and interiors. The primary focus is the Middle Ages, particularly France, although other areas and periods are represented." There is also a companion site "The Portal Project" with more panoramic photography linked to this homepage.

Mapping Gothic France

With plans, elevations, images, and panoramic photography, the Mapping Gothic France project allows viewers "...to explore the parallel stories of Gothic architecture and the formation of France in the 12th and 13th centuries, considered in three dimensions: space, time, and narrative." Space organizes the images on a map, time by construction dates, and narrative through stories and essays.

Smithsonian X 3D

"Smithsonian X 3D launches a set of use cases which apply various 3D capture methods to iconic collection objects, as well as scientific missions."
