    Computer Visualization as a Tool for Historic Preservation and Education



    This paper will discuss the possibilities of computer visualization to address many of the common pitfalls associated with historic preservation and the study of historic sites. Viewing historic locations enables us to provide a tangible link to history, and strengthens the connection during the educational process. Computer visualization of historically significant buildings can enrich distance learning possibilities as well as the visiting experience. As a case study, the James and Ann Whitall House, an historic home located in Red Bank, New Jersey, was used. The residence was built in 1748 and is sited on the banks of the Delaware River, in what is now Red Bank Battlefield Park.
