This demonstration project is being developed with NSF funding to explore the use of gigapixel image technology for science communication and learning. The exhibit is based on museum archaeologist and curator, Dr. Sandra Olsen's petroglyph research in Saudi Arabia desert where boulders and rocky outcrops have been found carved with ancient figures of people and animals. The rock art depicts lively scenes of hunting, herding, camel raiding and warfare, and they appear to range in date from prehistoric times to the present.

The gigapixel image featured in the exhibit is Shuwaymis West, a site with remarkably intact neolithic carvings visible.

We are experimenting with our external evaluator, Camellia Sanford on ways to use gigapixel imagery of a museum exhibit space to report and share research findings using a multiscalar explorable image medium.
