Billed as “a time-travel through more than 2000 years of history,” Paris 3D provides a virtual tour of many of the landmarks of Paris and lets you see how the city has developed since its Roman conquest in 52 BCE right up to the present day. Users can take guided tours from the 3D Paris website or on the accompanying iPad app. The site and the app are both free. Through the website, you can witness the construction of the Bastille and Notre Dame, navigate through winding stone streets in the Middle Ages and visit the 1889 World’s Fair to see the appearance of the Eiffel Tower. The Paris 3D website has been painstakingly built over two years by a team at Dassault Systemes, and they will continue to add more buildings and items over the coming years, again all free. Many of the monuments, such as the Bastille, no longer exist in the real world, so this site offers a great way to explore them as they would have looked
'Welcome to a virtual reconstruction of the ancient site of Xá:ytem on the banks of Fraser River, Mission in British Columbia, Canada. This is the only sacred transformer site in Canada open to general public, a cultural, historic and spiritual site for Stó:lo people. The ancestors of Stó:lo were a socially developed society of people who fished for salmon, systematically harvested the forests, traded over great distances and practiced a life rich in ceremony. Explore the scenes from their daily lives, the longhouse and pithouse (an underground circular cedar timbered dwelling), and see the famous transformer stone, Hatzic Rock on the verge of the forest.A Journey into Time Immemorial' is based on the story of Xá:ytem Longhouse in Mission BC in the Fraser Valley just east of Vancouver BC.
