This paper briefly analyzes the current documentation standards for Federal programs and creates an argument for the use of digital technologies in historic documentation. The technologies of photogrammetry, and laser scanning are addressed as methods for three dimensional modeling and compared to the current standard. Additionally, the issues posed by archiving on digital media are presented and courses of action suggested. Finally, the feasibility of a universal file format for archival purposes is addressed, and current progression toward this goal discussed.
