Hueco Tanks, TX

In 1998, Rupestrian CyberServices was contracted to map and photograph "approximately 50 sites" in a few weeks for the planning process. Using precision GPS, we mapped, and photographed 188 sites. For this project, we developed the now widely used techniques of digital image enhancement. We provided an ArcView GIS, site database, and an image database. We made extensive use of annotated panoramas to identify site locations.
