Recent Work on the Giza Plateau Computer Model 1997-1998: Towards a Virtual Giza

Since 1990, the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago has been working to create a computer model of the entire Giza plateau and its architectural components, using published maps, and survey and excavation reports. This update on the project focuses on the architectural components of the Giza pyramids. Although the underlying data for the Giza Plateau model are not available for public use at this time, users can view numerous examples online. At present, models have been completed for the following monuments: Khafre Mortuary Temple, Khafre Valley Temple, the Sphinx Temple; Menkaure Mortuary Temple, Menkaure Valley Temple; "the interior chambers of the Khafre and Menkaure pyramids, and the interior chambers and temples of the Queens' pyramids for both the Khafre and Menkaure pyramids." Most of the examples are available in both wireframe and shaded views.
