Visualizing the Past
Goodman Point Pueblo in Three-Dimensions
Digital mapping, aerial photography, and laser scanning are just some of the high-tech tools being used by archaeologists to bring the past to life. In 2008, Crow Canyon researchers were fortunate to collaborate with architect Dennis Holloway and mapping specialist James Holmlund to convert field data from Goodman Point Pueblo into reconstructions that allow the viewer to experience the site in three-dimensions. The reconstructions take the form of architectural models of the entire village and a color animation showing the results of excavation in one of the site’s many kivas.
For more information—and to view the models and animation—see the related story on Crow Canyon's Web site.
