Chan Chan


CyArk traveled to Northern Peru in August 2019 to document the Palacio Tschudi and Palacio Rivero walled complexes within the UNESCO world heritage site of Chan Chan. The sites documented were selected in partnership with the Ministry of Culture of Peru through the Dirección Desconcentrada de Cultura de La Libertad and the Proyecto Especial Complejo Arqueológico Chan Chan (Pecach). Mapping efforts included LiDAR laser scanning, terrestrial photogrammetry and aerial photogrammetry with drones. Higher resolution capture was completed at the funerary complex at Palacio Rivero and the audiencias at Palacio Tschudii. The funerary complex and audiencias are protected with protective roof coverings and cannot be documented from the air. A workshop on digital documentation was held for participants from the Proyecto Especial Complejo Arqueológico Chan Chan around digital documentation and processing techniques for use in the ongoing monitoring program.
