Fort Laramie 3D/HABS

Date: 1/1/2009
Principal Researchers:
  • Ekaterini Vlahos
  • Mike Nulty
  • Jenn Thomas
  • Karen Wolf
Location: Laramie National Historic Site, Wyoming

Graduate architecture and landscape architecture students developed a new set of digital media, including interactive panoramic imagery and 3-D computer models of the site, structures, and context of the Laramie National Historic Site in southern Wyoming. The work was undertaken for the Heritage Preservation Programs branch of the Intermountain Regional Office of the National Park Service in Lakewood, Colorado. This Historic American Buildings Survey demonstration project used a combination of traditional documentation methods and state-of-the-art digital technology in order to provide highly visual and interactive documentation of a NPS historic site. It specifically involved the compilation and production of an inventory; layout design of information links including storyboards of interactive website construction options; SketchUp 3-D site maps related to four historic period models of Fort Laramie; and virtual tours utilizing fly-through videos and photostitching.
