The Theban Mapping Project
is a fine example an interactive web atlas. The work is still in progress but already it is an impressive and thorough atlas of the tombs of the ancient Egyptian pharoahs. It is split into 2 sections - the Atlas of the Valley of the Kings and the Atlas of the Theban Necropolis. The Atlas of the Valley of the Kings currently contains the bulk of the work uses maps as a tool to navigate to an array of movies, images, text, plans and links about each of the tombs. The Atlas of the Theban Necropolis (of which the Valley of the Kings is a small section) employs a black and white zoomable and pannable satellite image and reveals the extent of the work yet to be completed.
