History 51 Pyramids of Earth
This page contains resources for History 51 Pyramids of Earth: Religion and Symbol in the Ancient World. Here you'll find links to helpful tutorials and videos related to SketchUp Pro, Google Earth Pro, and 3D modeling. You can also find more targeted help through our peer-to-peer support hours or by sending us an email at email@example.com.
For this course you will be utilizing two specific software packages:
SketchUp Pro is a 3D modeling computer program for a broad range of drawing and design applications — including architectural, interior design, industrial and product design, landscape architecture, civil and mechanical engineering, theater, film and video game development.
Google Earth Pro is a computer program, formerly known as Keyhole EarthViewer, that renders a 3D representation of Earth based primarily on satellite imagery. The program maps the Earth by superimposing satellite images, aerial photography, and GIS data onto a 3D globe, allowing users to see cities and landscapes from various angles.
The DSC offers a wide range of tools and spaces to support your digital 3D workflows.
The Digital Scholarship Department offers peer-to-peer support drop-in hours during Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters. Check back here during term time for a weekly support schedule.
The land on which we gather is the unceded territory of the Awaswas-speaking Uypi Tribe. The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, comprised of the descendants of indigenous people taken to missions Santa Cruz and San Juan Bautista during Spanish colonization of the Central Coast, is today working hard to restore traditional stewardship practices on these lands and heal from historical trauma.
The land acknowledgement used at UC Santa Cruz was developed in partnership with the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band Chairman and the Amah Mutsun Relearning Program at the UCSC Arboretum.
