In 2003 students in the University of Texas School of Architectures Historic Preservation program spent four months gathering and compiling information on the Browning Ranch. Their work resulted in a Cultural Landscape Report. Much of the work was conducted with the use of a global positioning system (GPS) in order to accurately map various cultural features. In addition, the class produced detailed measurements of historic structures, resulting in approximately fifteen measured drawings of various ranch structures.
