In 2019-2020, the Digital Heritage and Humanities Collections at the University of South Florida Libraries, collaborated to document the entirety of the site and landscape using 3D and imaging technologies, drone-based mapping, and GPS. Additional laser scanning documentation at the family burial plots at nearby Limona Cemetery were also done as a way of memorializing the lives and works of the Moseley family.
The Moseley Homestead
3D Model Digital Collection
View our interactive and annotated 3D model collection to learn more about the history and legacy of this significant heritage site and the influential historical figures from the Moseley family.
Models can be viewed on desktop or mobile device or use the augmented reality application on mobile platforms or try viewing through your VR headset for full immersion. All models are optimized for VR and 3D experience, and many contain annotations or interactive exploration inserts to promote deeper learning and interest.

Mapping the Moseley Homestead
The USF DHHC heritage specialists used a combination of techniques to map the entirety of the present-day Moseley Homestead. A drone-based survey included the use of ground control points, with targets that were mapped in with GPS to allow for us to create detailed digital elevation models for the site. GPS was also used to map in trails, features and other locations of historical note, recording attribute details to assist in the documentation and understanding of the landscape. Aerial LiDAR data for the area was processed to blend with terrestrial laser scanning and drone based 3D data to provide a high resolution mapping effort to support on-going research and site management needs. Our heritage and GIS specialists also conducted a review of historic aerial imagery and maps, with maps dating back to the time before the Moseley family arrived in Limon and aerial imagery available beginning in 1938 for Hillsborough County.
