Digital Giza: A New Portal to the Pyramids

The creation of a three-dimensional prototype of the Khafre Pyramid Complex for inclusion in the Digital Giza Project website.

The objective of this Digital Project for the Public (DPP) Prototyping Grant is the creation of scale-version prototype of the Giza Project’s forthcoming public website—Digital Giza: A Portal to the Pyramids (Digital Giza, for short). Using the tools of the future to study the past, this public resource will integrate diverse, primary documentation from over 100 years of international archaeological research with the most archaeologically accurate 3D immersive computer model of the entire Giza Plateau, including the pyramids, temples, settlements, and surrounding cemeteries. The result will be a powerful new online education and research tool for the world community at all levels of expertise.
