GlobalXplorerº (GXº) was created to empower a diverse, global community to help archaeologists curtail the cultural heritage destruction happening on a global scale. The world has millions of archaeological sites still waiting to be discovered, and many are threatened with destruction daily through conflict, looting, encroachment, and environmental change. We are dedicated to urgently finding and protecting the world’s hidden heritage. GlobalXplorerº exists to map and document archaeological sites with a crowd-sourced expedition of virtual Xplorersº, community hubs of citizen archaeologists to assist with local field work, and a global platform that makes cultural heritage data accessible to all. In the end, we envision a world where our cultural heritage data is shared openly, widely, and with great relevance to all. GlobalXplorerº is headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, at the Innovation Depot, one of the U.S.’s leading business incubation facilities. GXº was established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2016 by Dr. Sarah Parcak — Egyptologist, National Geographic Explorer, 2016 TED Prize winner, and Space Archaeologist.
