Imperiled Heritage Preservation

Elliot Sugar Mill, Florida

Project Description:

AIST in partnership with the National Park Service Southeast Archeological Center (SEAC), used 3D laser scanning and GPS to accurately record location, preservation status and conditions of the Elliott Sugar Mill (8VO160). AIST used terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) and the development of a GIS geodatabase for spatial analysis, site documentation, and stabilization considerations for the mill and surrounding environs. The site is an 18th century British Period sugar plantation now jointly managed by the Canaveral National Seashore (CANA), U.S. Fish and Wildlife (USFW) Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, and the National Park Service. CAD renderings of the mill site were made from the TLS survey, and aerial LiDAR and GPS were used to document and consider the landscape area.
