COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - The Alamo will be getting some high-tech preservation help.
Texas A&M University architecture professor Robert Warden leads the effort to create digital models of the historic mission in San Antonio. Experts hope the imaging data being collected this summer will help computers track rain-related erosion and other weather influences.
School officials on Monday offered details of the project backed by the Ewing Halsell Foundation and the Texas General Land Office.
The digital models will focus on how the Alamo existed in 1836 during the historic battle for Texas independence, in 1885 when San Antonio became the site's custodian and from detailed drawings done in 1961.
The project also includes Texas A&M-Kingsville, the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Texas at San Antonio.
