Innovative imaging and visualization techniques allow for the capture and display of features or objects within theirbroader spatial contexts. With respect to Maya cave architecture, high-resolution panoramic visualization and theproduction of 3D models can be powerful analytical tools, enabling the evaluation of potentially meaningful relationshipsbetween natural features and constructed features within a cave. A collaboration between the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH) in Quintana Roo and the University of California, San Diego involves a study of at-riskcave shrines. Initial comparative and multiscalar analyses across terrestrial and subterranean environments provideinsight into the form, function, and meaning of Postclassic cave architecture in the northeastern Maya lowlands.
