About the Southwest United States National Parks and Monuments:
The land of the southwestern United States holds a spectacular and sacred history. In this land, ancient cultures dating back more than 3,000 years built incredible dwellings to support their cultures. The Ancestral Puebloans, Hohokam, Mogollon, Sinagua, and Salado peoples each created unique dwellings reflecting their own specific spiritual, cultural, and agricultural practices. Cliff dwellings, pithouses, kivas, multi-story structures, canals, diversion dams, and farming terraces are just a few types of structures built hundreds of years ago.

Preserved by the arid climate of the area, the remaining architecture of these dwellings are a window into the past. Through this window the lifestyles, spiritual practices, and changes that took place over the course of hundreds of years can be observed. Much has been discovered, but despite research by archeologists and knowledge from present-day descendants, much is still unknown about the sites and the peoples that once inhabited them.

Thousands of dwellings and sites exist throughout the Southwest. The National Park Service manages and provides public access to many of them in cooperation with American Indians and Native authorities. Over twenty National Park Service sites are presented here for exploration in this unique format.

Interpretive Virtual Tour Testimonialss
"As a computer specialist for Mesa Verde National Park, I was surprised the park did not have more hands-on or interactive programs for visitors when I joined the park in 2001. Most of the exhibits contain historical artifacts behind glass, which is great for displaying items to our visitors. The technology era we now live in supports so much more for people to see and do when they vacation. The 360 degree exhibit Four Chambers installed at the Far View Visitor Center assists Mesa Verde National Park to provide an interactive medium for presenting important cultural resources of the park to our visitors. Especially to people who may not be able to attend live tours in the cliff dwellings. the 360 degree virtual tour application can take them there and provide essential interpretive information about cultural resources of the park. In my opinion, the virtual tours are a great way to expand our visitation to Mesa Verde."
