This project researched and recorded the structures at the Allegheny Portage Railroad in PA through 3D scans. The processed data from the scans were used as the basis for creating 3D reconstructions in a virtual landscape on the Nova Archeology grid of the Virtual Islands Bettering Education (VIBE) group. This venture is one-step in developing digital 3D modeling as a new form of historic property documentation and will illustrate how this technology will assist future archaeologists and historians. The information will also provide an additional resource of baseline information to others interested in the historical landmark showcasing a bygone era through the virtual platform .
