An example embedded TMJava map is shown in Figure 11a which draws on map and photographic resources from Aurel Stein's archaeological expeditions, held by the British Library, and superimposes these on background data prepared by the Sydney University Archaeological Computing Laboratory.

A further example is a project by the Centre for the Analysis of Sacred Space (CASS), U.C. Santa Barbara, which is building teaching resources about religious sites in Asia. These resources allow students to explore major religious sites, read commentary and view photographs and video in context, using datasets supplied by other ECAI members as background to data collected in the field by CASS staff (Figure 11b). This project is still in prototype.
