Google Arts & Culture has announced the launch of a new online project that aims to help preserve Maslawi heritage and cultural landmarks using technology.
The new initiative, titled “The Art & Soul of Mosul,” allows people to discover the Noori Complex, an iconic cultural site that faced destruction. Both Iraqis and tourists can also get a chance to walk through Mosul’s Old City using street view, and will be able to view 3D models of heritage sites at risk, such as Mosul’s first mosque and one of its oldest churches.
