The West Central Center of the Florida Public Archaeology Network

The West Central Center of the Florida Public Archaeology Network promotes and facilitates the conservation, study, and public understanding of Florida’s archaeological heritage on Florida’s west coast. The Center’s activities include promoting archaeological/heritage tourism, developing partnerships with regional heritage organizations, disseminating archaeological information to the public, promoting regional heritage events and programs, and facilitating archaeological volunteer opportunities. In addition, the Center supports local governments in their efforts to preserve and protect regional archaeological resources by assisting with local archaeological ordinances, comprehensive plan elements, and preservation plans; providing professional archaeological assistance with local archaeological emergencies; and advising local governments on the best management practices for municipally-owned and county-owned archaeological sites.

Alliance for Integrated Spatial Technologies

The Alliance for Integrated Spatial Technologies provides faculty and students with the opportunity for interdisciplinary training and research in three-dimensional visualization and spatial mapping using High Definition Documentation Survey technologies, including 3D Laser Scanning, Global Positioning Systems, Geographic Information Systems, photogrammetry, and multi-spectral imaging. These are non-invasive, non-destructive technologies for rapidly collecting highly accurate and detailed spatial data that allow objects, structures, and even landscapes to be measured, documented, visualized, and potentially duplicated, in a single data collection event. For more information, visit the website at http://AIST.cas.usf.edu or contact Lori Collins (lcollins@cas.usf.edu) or Travis Doering (tdoering@mail.usf.edu).
