The Giza Project: Consolidated Archaeological Reference Database

The creation of an integrated database of archaeological data from excavations at the Egyptian site of Giza, distributed across ten institutions in the United States, Europe, and Egypt, representing some 170,000 digital files.

The Giza Project is an international initiative dedicated to the collection, electronic preservation, scholarship, and popular presentation of the world's most famous archaeological site: the Giza Pyramids. We are currently poised to present Giza's rich cultural legacy to the global community by undertaking the creation of the GizaCARD, a core database with the innovative goal of being the central repository and research hub for all Giza data from all collections worldwide and spanning all periods. GizaCARD will represent an unprecedented global collaborative effort and will in future feed a new public website that embeds traditional archaeological documentation into an immersive 3D computer model of the entire site of Giza. The Giza Project provides a model of archaeological and archival information management and demonstrates how digital archaeology may become a new public forum for inquiry and discovery for all.
