Background
After eighteen field seasons documenting cultural monuments and landscapes in the Altai Mountains, Dr Esther Jacobson-Tepfer and James Meacham, Director, InfoGraphics Lab, received an NEH grant to archive and present their work online. The materials to be supported by an online image repository and interactive website and map ranged from digital images, static and dynamic maps, and in-depth textual analysis detailing how these archaeological monuments reflected the movement and lives of ancient hunters and herders.
