The research team used a Leica C-10 3d Laser Scanner to complete a scan of the entire house taking readings of house details about every millimeter. Evan Van de Wall also used a higher resolution Next Engine Laser Scanner to record fine details such as fireplace mantels and attic beam work. Colleen Mahoney and Greg Fobes gathered cesium magnetometer gradient data in the front yard to support her senior thesis, which is comparing total field data versus fluxgate and total field versus gradient data.
Scott Stull and Michael "Bodhi" Rogers gave a public presentation on their work at the historic site to a standing room only crowd. Old Fort Johnson is the original 1749 fortified limestone house, on the north bank of the Mohawk River, New York Colony, built by Sir William Johnson, (Warragh-i-ya-gey), Superintendent of Indian Affairs and hero at the Battles of Lake George and Fort Niagara.
