Four Corners Lecture Series: SCAAS Cultural Landscapes Survey Program

by Greg Munson, Ray Williamson, Chris Dombrowski, Ric Alling & Mary Weahkee

SCAAS has a strong and enduring interest in developing and deploying guidance on the use of new technologies to add standardized landscape orientation, feature detail and horizon data to archaeological site documentation form packages and reports. Their documentation process investigates placement of sites on the landscape, their spatial relationships and building feature orientation to horizon features and events. It combines traditional architectural documentation with photogrammetry, LiDAR terrain modeling, calibrated horizon profiles and Stellarium astronomy software. Escalante Pueblo at Canyons of the Ancients National Monument was their first Cultural Landscapes Survey Project and the results will be presented here.

August 23, 2023  |  4-5 pm
