Progressive Partnerships for Heritage Preservation: 3D Immersive Learning, Documentation and Research Tools in our Nation’s Park System
Today, much of the world’s cultural heritage is at risk from natural and human-induced causes. New technologies such as terrestrial laser scanning, advances in imaging and photography, 3D printing, and other spatial and visualization techniques are greatly advancing capabilities for heritage preservation and research. These technologies are democratizing data access, and improving the ability to share and interpret archaeological information globally. The ability to rapidly and accurately document the world around us is revolutionizing fields of archeology and museum sciences and is creating new areas of research integration. Using case study examples from collaborative work in our Nation’s National Park Service (NPS) System, we will demonstrate the latest in research involving heritage and archeological documentation and to emphasize effective workflows and approaches for the heritage management. These projects are bringing National Parks to the classroom and are enhancing and improving the way we teach, learn and interact with our past, offering educators and the NPS immersive and interactive methods for interpretation and instructional experiences.
