Friday, June 14, 2013
MADRID, SPAIN—Egyptologists will be able to view high-resolution images of the tomb of Tutankhamun with a new navigator prepared for Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities by the Factum Foundation, which is dedicated to using digital recording for the preservation and exhibition of artifacts. Such detailed images can protect ancient works of art from exposure to too many people. The scientists will be able to examine the entire tomb and monitor its condition remotely, using a web browser, and they will be able to leave notes for other researchers on what they’ve seen.
