  • NM is short of traditional economic resources, but we do have new potential if we acknowledge that we are no long in the Age of Agr. Or the Industrial Age, but the Digital Age. The culture of the state, and esp. local and state gov’t doesn’t really grasp that. Recent mtg of Computer Museum Network in Austin. Even though “Cultural Tourism” is a major economic sector, esp. north of I-40; Dale Kronkight and I were the ONLY New Mexicans there; more people came from Australia than NM.

  • Data In: Find or have access to the artifact Fine-grained imagery in multiple forms: hi-def photography of all sorts (standard, microscopic, IR, multiple filters); holography Standardized recording keeping system Analysis: Tools/methods drawn from as many disciplines as possible Tools/methods widely shared (might not need multi-spectrum lasers every day, but….) Wide-open data bases on the WWW Information Out: Make ALL primary data – at whatever stage, but with caveats (e.g. Don’t want to tell pot hunter locations; sometimes sacred considerations) – available to anyone Digital storage is cheap Bandwidth getting better Leverage global knowledge and insight. Tell public, “This is what we’re pretty sure we know. This is what we “think” we know, and this is what we don’t know. Can you help us?)

Yellow and orange areas have higher levels of phosphorus present. When overlayed on hydrology layers in GIS analysis, these can be prioritized for investigation and remediation where necessary Bottom left : Top of The Dragon's Head At 30X Microscopic Power http://www.timelessjade.com/2010/03/15/liao-to-ming-dynasty-nephrite-cup-with-pseudomorphs-part-two/liao-ming-jade-cup-prosser-collection-25-1/ In the above photographs we can see the light re-polishing that had taken place years ago, with the original degradation and subsequent wear upon even the re-worked surfaces. In the lower groove of the top photo, just to the left of the eyes of the dragon, original drill tool marks show up under 10X power magnification on the upper edges, along with original dirt deposits. The obvious pitting shown at both magnifications leaves little room for doubt as to the authenticity of the Ronald Edwin Prosser Estate Collection’s Two Dragon Jade Cup.

  • Typically and increasingly requires collaboration of people with diverse and high-level skills. http://www.infoq.com/news/2010/07/ambient-ubiquitous-computing Ambient computing represents the next step in a trend, also pioneered at Xerox PARC in the eighties, of tiered devices - desktops, laptops, pad computers, and smart phones - with one important difference. At each tier, the devices embody models (computation, apps), views (the display), and controllers (input and interaction capability. In ambient computing the environment is the view, computing can be anywhere, on a local server or in the cloud, and the device serves primarily as a controller. This vastly expands the kinds of devices that can take on the role of 'controller' in an ambient environment. Laser pointers, Wii controllers, smart phones, even human gestures; all can be used as sources of input and control that affect the software simulations and affect what is projected into the environment. One other added advantage, ambient environments are inherently 'multi-touch,' you can have numerous people interacting simultaneously.

  • 2. Objectives
    • New Mexico is a poor state in the traditional definitions of the 19 th and 20 th centuries
    • New Mexico is a rich state IF we can recognize we are in the Digital Age
    • A proposal for economic development
      • Little capital cost
      • Large commitment to change
  • 3. The catalyst: Lienzo de Quauhquechollan www.lienzo.ufm.edu /
  • 4. Lienzo up close….
  • 5. Restoration story
    • Trans-disciplinary team anthropology, archaeology, chemistry, epigraphy, ethnobotany, digital technology, film animation, graphic design, history, law, photography, storytelling and textiles
    • Digital restorers, animation programmers, script writers, and narrators.
  • 6. Restoration story
    • Photographers captured high-resolution images of the original at the Casa de Alfeñique Museum in Puebla, Mexico. 
    • For maximum resolution
      • divided the surface of the Lienzo into three rows and five columns.
      • For each of the 15 sections, they created a 4 x 5 inch reprography plate (negative) and a scan. 
      • The quality is so high that individual threads of the cloth can be seen clearly.
  • 7. The catalyst: Mysterious object
  • 8. Every cultural artifact has a story
    • Who
    • What
    • Where
    • When
    • Why
    • How
    • So what?
  • 9. Stories a function of….

  • 10. Analytic tools – Handheld XRF http://www.niton.com/Managers/Multimedia/XL3-presentation/Thermo_20070720_GN.html
  • 11. XRF analysis of patrimony
  • 12. “ Borrowing” from GISystems
    • Geographic Information Systems = integrates, data, hardware, software and GPS to assist in the analysis and creation of maps.
  • 13. Borrowing from GIScience
    • Geographic Information SCIENCE
      • Examines impacts of GIS on individuals and society, and the influences of society
      • Incorporates more recent developments in cognitive and information science.
      • GI Science overlaps with and draws from more specialized research fields such as computer science, statistics, mathematics, and psychology, and contributes to progress in those fields.
      • Great strides in geo-statistics
  • 14. Different disciplines; similar methods Geology phosphorus on land scan for a small portion of this reservoir's watershed Liao To Ming Dynasty Two Dragon Cup
  • 15. Different disciplines; similar methods
    • Figure 6 Patient OFDI-03 Images of Right Coronary Artery
    • (A) A left anterior oblique angiogram after stent deployment shows stent site (s) and 3.0-cm optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) pullback segment (ps). (B) Fly-through view (distal-proximal) demonstrates a calcified lesion underneath the stent (arrow). (C) An OFDI cross-sectional image, obtained at location of yellow arrow in B, shows a large calcific nodule from 11- to 4-o'clock. Tick marks, 1 mm.

  • 16. Geostatistics: Semivariogram/Covariance
  • 17. Geostatistics: How many different ways could we measure these pots?
  • 18. Remote Sensing  Pattern Matching
  • 19. Remote sensing
    • The art or science of telling something about an object without touching it.
    • Important and desirable when analyzing artifacts
    • More recently… …using images acquired … by employing electromagnetic radiation in one or more regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, reflected or emitted…
  • 20. DNA analysis
    • Much more than living things
