Iowa City Beer Caves LiDAR Scanning Project
The Iowa City Beer Cave (ICBC) LiDAR project is a collaboration by members of the University of Iowa community. This multi-discipline project includes members of the departments of Geographical and Sustainability Sciences, Classics, Anthropology and the Office of the State Archaeologist, Iowa Flood Center, and ICIGO - the undergraduate geographic outreach organization. We are interested in this space from a variety of angles ranging from training and application of the terrestrial LiDAR system, local geography and history, creation and interaction with virtual environments, and outreach. We extend a special thank you to Marc Moen for allowing us access to the site.
More information will be posted at this site as the project evolves so check back often.
