Site DescriptionIn February 2015, Hawaiian- President Barack Obama designated Honouliuli at a unit of the National Park Service. Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, then President Franklin Deleno Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, which allowed the military to forcibly remove and confine over 120,000 Japanese Americans on the West Coast and Hawaii. Honouliuli Internment camp was the largest and and longest-used site of confinement on the Hawaiian Islands where both US citizens and residents of Japanese ancestry as well as people of European ancestry were confined for the duration of the war. The camp was also used for prisoners of war, confining enemy soldiers from Japan, Korea, Okinawa, Taiwan, and Italy.
Project DescriptionIn the spring of 2015, CyArk partnered with Mid-Pacific High School to train students on digital documentation techniques. Together CyArk and Mid-Pacific students documented the former Honouliuli camp, where Japanese Americans were confined by the US government during World War II. Students documented the site using LiDAR and photogrammetry. CyArk processed the data, and the students conducted research about the site to make infographics and videos about the site’s history and their experiences being part of the project. The project was made possible by a Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant established by congress in 2006 'To provide for the preservation of the historic confinement sites where Japanese Americans were detained during World War II...in order that present and future generations may learn and gain inspiration from these sites.'
