Presentation Abstract

The purpose of my project is to demonstrate; (1) how using a Geographical Information System (GIS) tool such as Environmental Scientific Research Institute’s (ESRI) ArcGIS Pro 2.2 and ArcGIS Enterprise in collaboration with Autodesk Revit could help leverage visualization and documentation within a 3D environment. (2) how the use of current technology could assist in the virtual narration of the biblical history of Tell Hisban. (3) visually how human and natural events have impacted the landscape of Biblical Hisban in order to show the reader of the Bible how the biblical world was different from today. (4) how ArcGIS Enterprise is able to provide an environment of collaboration within the archaeological community while at the same time creating an avenue for those who cannot travel to Tell Hisban to visit and preserve the culture and history of the Ancient Near East.
