We believe that remnants and ruins of buildings and places do not give the necessary visual impact to a visitor today. In order for us to grasp the look and feel of such long gone buildings, we need to recreate them visually. We believe the most effective way to do this is by a) getting an aerial perspective of the location with a plane or a drone and then b) recreate the building virtually using the same base image.

Our mission is to research specific areas and time frames of human history and draw our own conclusions from our findings. We are open minded and willing to think outside the box. We let the research data leads us on our way to find answers even if they are outside the traditional boundaries.

We use modern technology such as aerial and underwater drones to get the research data and photographs, which we need for our analysis. We also do not shy away from getting ourselves airborne or dive the oceans with scuba gear or submarines. Whatever it takes to get the necessary data.

The timeframe for our interests in human history is very wide: We begin with fossils and end up with World War II. That said Antiquity is our main focus in particular the era of the Roman Empire.

We use methods of remote sensing in general and aerial photography in particular. We base our reconstructions on scientific facts and use the aerial shots to create a more realistic environment of the sites in question. We strongly believe that the aerial perspective gives the best overview.

Our team of international researchers comes from various walks of life but with one common interest: To find the truth about a particular place or time and to tell it like it is. We collaborate around the globe and across time zones. 

We specialize in creating 3D reconstructions of the places we research. We build 3D models and bring them to life with realistic renderings. This is our way to show the world what these ruins and bones once looked like and what life in that time was all about.

The two pictures above and below are a good showcase of our work: The public Greek baths in Thessaloniki, Greece are the sole remnants dating back to the first century CE. The picture above shows what the main bath room looks like today. The virtual reconstruction below is based on archaeological and scientific facts and gives the viewer a much better impression of what it was like to be inside these baths in the year 55 CE.
Astronomy
Astronomy could be seen as the ultimate 'remote sensing' approach. We use several high quality telescopes for our own observations. This just adds to our library and data pool.
 
The image to the right is an example of this: It was a total eclipse of the sun as seen in Curacao where we took our gear for the occasion. In 2017 we had another chance to capture great images of the total eclipse going across the United States.
Underwater Exploration
We have always been fascinated by underwater exploration, be that in person using scuba gear or by submarine as we have done so in the Caymans. Our dedication to underwater archaeological exploration is only growing at this point: We have used our first self-made underwater drone in the waters around Bermuda last year where we explored several wrecks. 
 
For this year we plan on replacing our current underwater drone with a more upscale professional version so we can take it to various wrecks in the Great Lakes, USA.
