Cataloging Archaeological Sites, A MEGA Project

I just ran across this interesting post from a few weeks ago.  It seems that an alphabet soup of non-profit companies, The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI), World Monuments Fund (WMF), and Jordan Department of Antiquities (DoA) are developing a geographic information system to manage archaeological sites in Jordan. The Middle Eastern Geodatabase for Antiquities (MEGA) […]
