Adding Lasers to the Archaeological Toolkit: The Costs and Benefits of Terrestrial LiDAR in Digital Archaeology (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Patricia G Markert. Benjamin Skolnik. Stefan F. Woehlke.

In recent years, companies such as FARO and CyArk have begun incorporating 3D laser scanners into field-ready packages.  Archaeologists have successfully employed these new 3D laser-scanning techniques to record sites such as Mount Rushmore and Merv in modern-day Turkmenistan.  Despite the potential benefits of using this technology, which produces quickly scanned, high-resolution images of topography and features, several limitations have slowed it from entering the archaeologist’s standard...

Ground-penetrating radar and terrestrial laser scanning reconstruction of the prison and Civil War era historic fortifications on Alcatraz Island (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Mark Everett. Timothy S. de Smet. Robert Warden. Tanya Komas. Jason Hagin.

Between 2012 and 2013 we conducted a cultural resources assessment and historic preservation project with the National Park Service on Alcatraz Island using terrestrial laser scanning and ground-penetrating radar. Alcatraz is most (in)famous for its brief period as a Federal Penitentiary (1934-1963); however, for the vast majority of its history it was a military fortification – Fortress Alcatraz - under the U.S. Army. As the need for harbor defense diminished, the island was converted into a...

More than a picture: Experiments in Terrestrial Lidar documentation in archaeological and architectural management at Texas Army National Guard (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kristen Mt. Joy. Laura Carbajal. David Rolbiecki. Mark Hinojosa.

Texas Army National Guard is responsible for management of archaeological and historical buildings at several locations across the state. In order to more effectively integrate preservation concerns into the many internal systems of the Guard's organization, the Cultural Resources team has been reaching out to other departments for expertise and access to technology. This poster summarizes the efforts to utilize terrestrial LiDar not only for detailed documentation of historic properties, but...
