LiDAR, GPS, andGIS Examination of Cattle Mound Archaeological Sites in Congaree National Park
Using aerial LiDAR field verified with GPS survey, 3D models were created for the park’s historic cattle mount and historic agricultural site locations – mounded earthworks part of an historic agricultural landscape that exists within this wilderness park. These models can be useful in understanding configuration and shape of these subtle features, and can be used by the park to create tactile and immersive interpretive understandings through 3D printing, VR, and AR visualization. This project is part of a cooperative research agreement partnership with the National Park Service and the University of South Florida.
