Historic Preservation Program

Envision Nantucket

Envision Nantucket is a collaboration between the University of Florida Preservation Institute Nantucket, Nantucket Preservation Trust, and the Town of Nantucket. The long-term goal is to create a digital model of the historic urban environment of Nantucket Town and Sconset and detailed documentation of major landmarks and historic residential interiors. Products generated from laser scanning and other 3D imaging techniques are being used to help preserve, manage, and interpret the island’s built and cultural resources. The work of Envision Heritage is supported by the Osceola Foundation and the Nantucket Community Preservation Committee.
