Computer model of the Track Rock Terrace Complex
This is a virtual reality image of the computer model I created, using a GPS device and a laser measuring device. If you recall the History Channel program on December 21, 2015, the computer model matched perfectly the LIDAR scan, commissioned by the History Channel. The ruins rise 600 feet above Track Rock Gap. They cover approximately a half square mile.
Spanish traders visited this town in the late 1500s to purchase gold, diamonds, rubies and sapphires. They called it “Great Copal” because the Itsate priests in the temples of the acropolis burned Copal incense night and day.
