Archaeologists and museum professionals have often been at the forefront of immersive visualization technologies, unlocking their potential to aid in the documentation and representation of material culture. At the same time, the role that visualization walls, photogrammetry, and virtual reality can play in research, scholarship, and student engagement is a relatively new frontier. To explore these possibilities, Research IT and the Hearst Museum of Anthropology have led a series of projects with a growing set of partners on campus and beyond.
