"We're going to be document over 500 tracks from at least four different species of dinosaurs from a hundred million years ago," said adjunct professor Rick Watson.

Students and staff will be using new technology to bring the tracks back to life.

"What we're going to be doing is using a series of drones," Watson said.

In addition to drones, students will use 3-D scanners and LIDAR.
