Digitizing the Past: Recent 3D Modeling at Crow Canyon

Three-dimensional modeling is an important part of today’s archaeological practice. Drone and ground-based photogrammetry allow for the very accurate and precise modeling of archaeological sites, contexts, and artifacts. These digital models can be used to preserve fragile contexts, as educational tools, and as a means of sharing archaeological data and objects with members of the interested public and descendant groups. This webinar discusses recent 3D modeling at Crow Canyon and includes information on model creation, discussions of the sites and artifacts presented, and it also outlines future directions for how these models might be used to enhance distance learning opportunities at Crow Canyon.
