I'm in the process of updating my Earthworks research site with something new

Taking GIS data and transforming it into AR and VR. I can already do Augmented Reality with Google Earth and Street view where earthworks pass by or through roads. I am still experimenting with VR. 3D No Problem.

Before Modern Cities

There was a vast Native American Culture in what is now the United States that spanned centuries and millennia that built geometric Earthworks and Mounds. This Culture was first named Adena and later Warren King Moorehead classified Hopewell and Fort Ancient as Classifications of Cultures he named after two of his Archeological sites. These are Cultural Classifications and not People classifications. There are no such things as Adena, Hopewell or Fort Ancient peoples or tribes but rather Adena, Hopewell or Fort Ancient Cultures also referred to as traditions. Another Classification is Wood land and Middle Woodland which are archaeological periods describing the time in which these Native American cultures and traditions took place.

Why am I making this?

I have multiple degrees in Anthropology, Earth Sciences, Computer Science-Networking, and Design I also have a love of Earthworks and the Cultures that created them so this website is the result of those passions. I believe there needs to be a better public understanding of the Works themselves as well as their scale, design, and locations so we can help protect and preserve what is left of these cultural wonders. Many of these sites are still being destroyed by development, agriculture, and quarries, mainly because of the lack of knowledge of their locations. Do not use this for looting purposes. I will not be including mortuary mounds on this site for that reason unless they are well known protected mounds.
