The ONE WORLD MOVIE PROJECT
A publicly funded effort to digitally document the wonders of the world for generations to come
Help support this project and you will be helping to digitally document the wonders of the world for generations to come. The One World Movie Project is an ongoing effort to digitally document and preserve the wonders of the world to bring them to millions who cannot travel to see them in person. Through the use of 360 x 360 spherical imaging, these world wonders are captured and developed into full screen virtual tours to be shared by everyone ... forever ... HELP US TODAY !

This is an ongoing project to digitally document all of the ancient wonders of the world while they are still in existence. We are currently preparing to document the MALDIVES before they disappear beneath our oceans forever. Please help support this project and bring more of these world wonders to the world to see forever. Read more about our ongoing efforts and projects below.

The Machu Picchu Project
Machu Picchu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As Peru's most visited tourist attraction and major revenue generator, it is continually threatened by economic and commercial forces. In the late 1990s, the Peruvian government granted concessions to allow the construction of a cable car and development of a luxury hotel, including a tourist complex with boutiques and restaurants. These plans were met with protests from scientists, academics, and the Peruvian public—all worried that the greater numbers of visitors would pose tremendous physical burdens on the ruins.
Geologists are also concerned about recent seismic activity which has been posing a greater threat to Machu Picchu as they are concerned of a possibility of half of the historic site sliding into the river valley below.
With the help of PROMPERU and the PERUVIAN EMBASSY in 2007 we have succesfully documented the entire site in full spherical photography and it has been preserved for generations digitally.
Chichen Itza was a major regional focal point in the northern Maya lowlands from the Late Classic through the Terminal Classic and into the early portion of the Early Postclassic period. The site exhibits a multitude of architectural styles, from what is called “Mexicanized” and reminiscent of styles seen in central Mexico to the Puuc style found among the Puuc Maya of the northern lowlands. The presence of central Mexican styles was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most contemporary interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion.
In 2006 INAH closed the temples to the public and no longer allows anyone access. In 2008 INAH granted us permission to begin documenting the temples and gave us access to restricted areas in order to digitally document them for the general public to see, and so generations to come could enjoy the view from the tops of these wonderous temples and Pyramids.
Over the last century, sea levels have risen about 20 centimetres (8 in);further rises of the ocean could threaten the existence of Maldives, being the lowest country in the world, with a maximum natural ground level of only 2.3 metres (7 ft 7 in), with the average being only 1.5 metres (4 ft 11 in) above sea level. However, around 1970, the sea level there dropped 20–30 centimetres (8–12 in).In November 2008, President Mohamed Nasheed announced plans to look into purchasing new land in India, Sri Lanka, and Australia, due to his concerns about global warming and the possibility of much of the islands being inundated with water from rising sea levels. Current estimates place sea level rise at 59 centimetres (23 in) by the year 2100. The purchase of land will be made from a fund generated by tourism.The President has explained his intentions:
"We do not want to leave the Maldives, but we also do not want to be climate refugees living in tents for decades".
In an effort to document this beautiful country and all of the wonders of its unique geographic features, its peoples and and their culture, we are currently preparing to document the island country digitally using our unique Spherical Imaging.
