In 2012 the National Park Service funded the University of Maine to virtually preserve the kitchen and the associated cistern and dining area of the 1801 British Officers Quarters on Hassel Island. Dr. Constance Holden supervised Surveying Technology undergraduate students Charlie Dexter and Sterling Hooke who collected survey and GPS to develop a geographic information system (GIS) model of the site. Karen J. Horton, P.E. supervised Mechanical Engineering Technology undergraduate students Patrick Dean and Nicklaus DeBlois and Old Town High School student Reid Horton who collected digital images of the site and developed close-range photogrammetry models of the structures.
