Coulterville's Heritage in the Digital Age

"Coulterville’s Heritage in the Digital Age" is an exhibit that features the work that has been done by the University of California Merced towards a larger project to digitally preserve the natural and cultural resources along the John Muir trail in the San Joaquin Valley and the Sierra Nevada Foothills.

The work in Coulterville has focused on:

  • 3D scanning and modelling of the physical
  • historic buildings
  • Cataloguing archives and photographs
  • Video interviews with residents
  • Recording the historic cemeteries

The exhibit will open on April 2 with an event allowing members of the public to digitally interact with some of the 3D models, view select video interviews, and explore the virtual exhibit website. It will close on April 24 with a second event showcasing these digital approaches to heritage preservation.
