Summary

This paper summarizes objectives, strategies and preliminary findings of ongoing research at Chaco Canyon led by the University of New Mexico and the Puente Institute, and funded by the National Science Foundation. The paper focuses on the use of advanced geospatial technologies for field data collection, analysis, and visualization. Project datasets to be discussed include airborne and terrestrial lidar, stereo panoramic photogrammetry, kite/balloon mapping, GIS-based full-motion video, ground-penetrating radar, hyperspectral and multispectral imaging. The paper also will touch on advanced data access and visualization through a range of 2D, 3D and augmented reality apps and tools.
