Mapping Amache Internment Camp with Extreme Accuracy for Augmented Reality Experience
This month marks 78 years since 110,000 Japanese-Americans were forcibly interned in 10 camps across the United States, following the Pearl Harbor bombings.
In this latest StoryMap from Eos Positioning Systems, we explore the stories of two men whose lives were connected by Amache Internment Camp in southeastern Colorado.
In the first chapters, we meet Dennis Otsuji, a renowned landscape architect who was born at Amache Internment Camp in 1943. Then, we meet Jim Casey, a GIS user and philanthropist on a quest to preserve Amache. Casey uses Esri ArcGIS Online tools, Arrow Gold for ground control points, augmented reality, and a variety of other softwares to bring Amache back to life. His goal is to make it so anyone can point an iPad and experience what it was like to be interned at Amache.
In an unlikely twist, Otsuji and Casey meet one fateful day when Otsuji goes searching for his past, just as Casey is working to preserve the past.
