Egmont Key Project
Dr. Hansen teamed up with Dr. Laura Harrison, Director of the Access 3D Lab, and Dr. Antoinette Jackson, Director of the USF Heritage Research Lab, to work with the THPO on innovative and engaging ways to highlight the Seminole experience at Egmont Key through virtual reality and 3D interpretive platforms. Through a May professional development workshop, open to all PCGS students, Access 3D Lab is using terrestrial laser scanners to document the island as it is today. This dataset will become the backdrop for the interactive virtual tour that will allow local and global audiences to better understand the relationship of past events at the site to contemporary Seminole identity. There will be an option to register for a Maymester course for 3 credits, co-taught by Dr. Hansen and Dr. Harrison.
