Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-045: Photography-1979

Author(s): John P. Nylander

Year: 1982


The Photography Section of the Dolores Archaeological Program implemented a system for organizing the large volume of photographic material generated during the 1979 field and laboratory operations. This system involved the aquisition of photographic information and the integration of that information, via computer-aided storage and retrieval mechanisms, into the general project data bank. The Photography Section also explored two remote-sensing methods, including biped and component mapper techniques. These alternatives to conventional photography were tested and tentatively evaluated in view of their potential use as valuable archaeological tools in future project investigations.

Originally the information in this record was migrated into tDAR from the National Archaeological Database Reports Module (NADB-R) and updated. In 2015, as part of its effort to improve tDAR content, the Center for Digital Antiquity uploaded a copy of the document and further improved the record metadata.

General Note: Editors Preface: This report describes the organization and achievements of the Photography Section during 1979, and is included in the Dolores Archaeological Program report series for that year. The author was no longer associated with the program when the report was edited for final submission; as a result, the necessary alterations in text were made without his knowledge. In addition to extensive editorial revisions, several contributions from the current Photography Section Crew Chief have also been included. Because the author was not available for consultation on these changes, the responsibility for the final version of this report rests with the Dolores Archaeological Program editorial staff.
