THE PALEOWAY – LEADING WITH TECHNOLOGY
PaleoWest has developed the premier approach to projects, employing a fully digital workflow for data collection and management. The advanced digital system we bring to our clients improves the efficiency of our work and the quality of our products.
PaleoWest was the first to design and deploy fully customized databases into the field using iDevices on a company-wide, national scale. This in-house development has set the trajectory for PaleoWest to integrate the newest technologies into our daily workflow in the field and office. We call this digital workflow the PaleoWay.
Digital data collection has transformed cultural and heritages resources reporting; it includes various field mapping applications, relational database input and processing, and photography. The PaleoWay system streamlines data collection, eliminates re-work and error, and produces report-ready data from the start, significantly reducing report preparation, production, and post-production times.
“Thanks to PaleoWest’s exceptional skills, creative problem solving, and sense of urgency, our project was completed on time. I heartily recommend PaleoWest as an archaeological consulting firm you can trust to secure archaeological clearance for your projects and perform at the highest level.”

Las Canopas Locus A Data Recovery
Rivendell Global Real Estate - Phoenix, Arizona
Rivendell proposes constructing a rental apartment community complex within a 12.08-acre parcel of private land in south Phoenix. The area was historically a pecan orchard with a farmhouse, sitting entirely within the boundary of the NRHP-eligible site of Las Canopas, a prehistoric Hohokam village site occupied for approximately 800 years.
Rivendell engaged us based on our excellent reputation among developers in Arizona to complete data recovery projects on or ahead of schedule. As a result, we were able to complete data recovery investigations and obtained clearance for the parcel from the CAO well over a month ahead of groundbreaking on the project, allowing Rivendell to commence construction on schedule.
