Site DescriptionTaos Pueblo is the largest multi-storied, adobe pueblo in the United States. It has been continuously inhabited since 1000 CE and is currently the only Native American community to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a National Historic Landmark. Taos Pueblo is located on 95,000 acres and is one mile north of the modern city of Taos, New Mexico.
Project DescriptionWorking with the Taos Tribal Government, The US National Park Service and World Monuments Fund, CyArk documented the site in collaboration with Nolte Engineering in 2010. CyArk utilized laser scanning and photogrammetry to document the entire complex including the multi-storeyed North house, San Geronimo church and several private homes. URC Ventures further assisted in drone documentation of the site. The project was part of a larger program led by World Monuments Fund to develop a training program for tribal members in conservation and conserve an 11-unit dwelling at the site. The documentation was used to create orthographic images and guide the conservation at the site. CyArk also provided a training to the tribal members on site documentation and data processing techniques.
