Two planning workshops for an online database of Maya architecture, with a long-term goal of developing a platform that curates 3-D virtual objects and environments linked to GIS data.

This is a request to support two planning workshops for an international large-scale project to develop a publicly accessible, online database of Maya architecture for the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Copan, Honduras that curates highly-accurate, 3D models in a virtual environment that is linked to a searchable GIS database of digital records. Art history, anthropology, and museum personnel from the University of New Mexico and the Honduran Institute of Anthropology and History will work with computer technology experts from the ETH Zurich and others to create a tool that makes full-use of the potential for 3D models in research and teaching on ancient architecture.
