|Site Description||The Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial is a United States military cemetery in Suresnes, Hauts-de-Seine, France. It is the resting place of 1,541 American soldiers killed in World War I. A panoramic view of Paris can be seen from the site, which is located high on the slopes of Mont Valérien. The site is managed by the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC).
The people of Suresnes donated this land to the United States in 1917, following America’s entry into World War I. Loaned in perpetuity, it became the site for America's first permanent overseas cemetery. Although Suresnes American Cemetery was the first permanent cemetery in Europe, the chapel was not completed until 1932.
|Project Description||To honor the centennial anniversary of the First World War, CyArk partnered with the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) to document eight military cemetery chapels dedicated to the American armed forces throughout Europe. The Suresnes American Cemetery chapel and two loggia were documented in July 2016 using LiDAR laser scanning and aerial and terrestrial photogrammetry. CyArk’s digital documentation allows people who are unable to physically visit the site to experience the monument and remember those who gave their lives for their country.|
