BTG/ESRI


Even by the end of the first season, the amount of geospatial data and the number of artifacts recovered was already immense and promised to quickly grow even larger.  It didn't take the El Hibeh team long to realize that in order to keep track of artifacts ranging from the smallest carved scarabs to the immense temple blocks as well as their findspots, powerful software was required.  With the help of BTG and ESRI, the expedition was able to purchase ArcView GIS 3.2.  Now each artifact can be entered in a georeferenced database, for future analysis and visual presentation.
