For several years, New Mexico's McKinley County GIS Center has been working with the Navajo Nation Historic Preservation Department and Chaco Culture National Historic Park to document and create virtual reconstructions of Anasazi ruins and their surrounding landscapes. Integrating data from disparate sources via GIS technology is the closest historians and archaeologists can come to creating an approximate model of this icon of Southwestern history.
