Tule Lake

Date: 1/1/2018
Principal Researchers:
  • Kat Vlahos
  • Mike Nulty
  • Julia Ausloos
  • Nadine Abell
Location: Japanese American Confinement Site - Tule Lake, CA

The Tule Lake Relocation Center is in Modoc County, California, 35 miles southeast of Klamath Falls, Oregon, and about 10 miles from the town of Tulelake. The relocation center reserve, which encompassed 7,400 acres, is presently a mix of public, state, and private land.

This site was documented using LiDAR, 3D laser scanning for the purpose of generating a highly accurate reconstruction model of the entire site. In addition to scanning the site, buildings and objects that had moved off site to museums were also scanned in order to add increased accuracy to the reconstruction modeling. The scanning and post processing was completed by The Center of Preservation Research’s Mike Nulty and Student Research Assistants Julia Ausloos and Nadine Abell.

This effort was completed in partnership with the National Park Service, the University of Colorado Denver and CyArk.
