Aztec Ruins, Architecture and Augmented Reality

(please consider for Poster After Dark)

The mounds immediately south of Aztec West were partially excavated in 1916, 1934 and 1960. These data have not yet been synthesized. Taken together, information from pottery, photographs, sketch maps and grey literature indicate the presence of masonry walls, possible staircases, and depositional patterns that are analogous to the Pueblo Bonito mounds. This poster will show these data in both traditional (2 dimensional) and augmented (3 dimensional) formats. Augmented reality will be used both to bolster Aztec architectural data, and illustrate its potential as a means to enhance poster presentations in many formats with projected data (viewed through smartphones and tablets) for an enriched graphic, video, and data-enhanced experience.
