Digital Technology Integration: San Antonio Riverwalk Documentation Pilot Project. A team of architecture students from the College of Architecture at Texas Tech University led by Professors John P. White and Gary W. Smith completed HALS documentation of the Arneson Theatre using a 3D laser scanner and AutoCad. The Arneson is an outdoor theatre with the stage on one side of the river and seating on the other. Constructed in 1938, the Riverwalk grew out of a 1938 WPA that began as an effort to tame the San Antonio River. According to the investigators, this is the first HALS project in the state of Texas, and it is the first historic landscape to be documented for HALS using laser-scanning technology.
