The World Wonders project also aims to capture user content, with photos from various sources, user-created YouTube videos, and even 3D models. The project is a partnership between Google, Unesco, the World Monuments Fund, Getty Images, Ourplace, and CyArk.

The partners aim to digitally preserve an original 132 sites, and will work to add more as part of the company's mission to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.
