|The Arizona Petrified Forest National Park contains one of the world’s largest concentrations of petrified wood, historic structures, archaeological sites and fossils. Scattered throughout the park are traces of nearly 13,000 years of human history and culture. Located in the southern portion of the Petrified Forest National Park, Sivu'ovi is an extensive site containing the remains of a large Basketmaker II period pit house village and several small Pueblo period rubble mounds.
|In 2011, the National Park Service and CyArk collaborated to digitally preserve Sivu'ovi, Petrified Forest National Park. The main goals of the project were to document the Sivu'ovi sites and the surrounding landscape and to create a base digital record of Sivu'ovi for use in archaeological research, conservation, education, and tourism. Many of the sites are situated on the edge of the bluff, which creates serious erosion problems. Theft of petrified wood is also a major concern, and nearly 14 tons of the fossil wood disappear from the forest each year. The documentation process included digital photography, terrestrial laser scanning, traditional survey, and HDR panoramic photography.
