“Technology and Preservation”

Featuring: Morris Hylton III, Director, University of Florida Historic Preservation Program

What does the ever-evolving technology of modern times have to do with historic preservation?

Everything! Join as we learn how historic buildings can be documented using emerging technologies, which are becoming affordable and mainstream. Historic property owners are using new technology to create three dimensional models that can be used for a myriad of purposes. In fact, many municipalities are documenting entire downtowns using laser scanning technology! 

The visual models that result from these scans can be used in every aspect of a historic preservation project, while saving money and ensuring an accurate depiction of the property. Are you a homeowner planning a historic rehab project? Are you a practitioner who is concerned with disaster preparedness? If so, this lecture is for you.

Morris (Marty) is Director of Historic Preservation and Associate Scholar at the University of Florida's College of Design, Construction and Planning where his research focuses on community engagement,3D imaging technology, and preserving heritage sites of the recent past, particularly postwar modern architecture and resources.

The lecture is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served.
The Historic Sanford Welcome Center is located at 230 E. 1st Street, Sanford FL 32771.
