Students

The directors of the Alliance for Integrated Spatial Technologies (AIST) are committed to educating students in all areas of cultural and natural heritage preservation and the applications of spatial technologies. We have consistently involved students at every level of our projects and provided discussion and consultation to help them find the most advantageous avenues for reaching their goals. Our focus has been on students interested in archaeology, heritage preservation, geo-spatial, and geomatic research. Nevertheless, we are also interested in exploring new areas of study. Our interests are multidisciplinary and we have collaborated with students and faculty in geology, geography, architecture, and engineering.

Student Comments:

"I was involved with scanning and documenting carved monuments at various locations in Guatemala. I found the experience to be rewarding on many different levels. Besides learning about the past and playing a role in its preservation, the interest of the present-day community was a constant reminder of why the project is so important." William Klinger, MA graduate.
