S2E15 - New for Old: Technology in Historic Preservation

Wed, 11/17/2021

Host(s)

On this episode we talk with John Rissetto, the State Environmental Coordinator with the USDA-Farm Service Agency for Nebraska. He and Gus discuss the curious juxtaposition between protecting the old by leveraging the new, such as the use of Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) in archeology and how it was used to find historic trails and buildings in Nebraska that are not discernible to the naked eye. Thank you to the Preservation Association of Lincoln and Ryan Reed for suggesting this topic and assisting in the production of this episode.
