Historic Spanish Point’s Archaeology Lecture Series is back! Join us on Saturday, February 9th from 1:00-3:00pm for a special presentation from Dr. Lori Collins of University of South Florida.
Heritage in Florida ranges from natural and cultural landscapes and constructed environments to features and portable artifacts. Differences in scale and representation requirements create unique challenges for digital documentation projects concerning best methods and approach, with expectations for desired outcomes often exceeding potentials for the selected technologies. Digital tools, such as 3D laser scanners, LiDAR, and photogrammetry, are increasingly being used to document heritage, but are often misapplied or used singularly, without maximizing the outcome and potential. Showcasing examples from decades of work with 3D projects across Florida, this talk will share some of the pioneering challenges faced, and show real-world examples ranging from famous objects like the Key Marco Cat to iconic locales such as the Castillo de San Marcos. This talk will highlight the benefits of digital strategies for education, research, and long-term preservation and conservation and will demonstrate how we have moved beyond the hype.
