The satellite imagery available through Google EarthTM is a valuable resource for archaeological research. The program is free to download from their website. Use the Latitude and Longitude coordinates for the archaeological sites included in the EES Delta Survey in Google EarthTM and the viewer will take you to that location. A few areas of the Delta are at present only photographed at low resolution, but the majority is available in good-quality images. These show the present size of the sites, their surroundings, areas lost to cultivation or other development and any ancient or modern buildings.

A selection of characteristic sites has been grouped for presentation as a Google EarthTM project, showing their distribution and present condition.
