CMET:Interactive Media Collaborates to Create Media Rich Website Documenting Research of Archaeological Monuments in the Altai Region of MongoliaThursday, November 13th, 2008
CMET:Interactive Media is currently collaborating with Dr. Esther Jacobson-Tepfer, UO Department of Art History, and the UO Infographics Lab on an NEH funded website to document ancient archaeological monuments in the Altai Mountains in Mongolia. This website supports Dr Jacobson-Tepfer’s understanding that “archaeological monuments reflect the movement of ancient hunters and herders through time and space; and that the orientation of monuments and their placement within the landscape were deliberate and meaninful.” The website features an inventory of monument classes, an interactive photographic archive, an interactive map and background on the geography and landscape of the Altai Region. The website will be accompanied by a print atlas documenting the project and region, published by ESRI Press. The site is expected to launch in Spring 2009.
