The Digital Karnak Project was funded in part with a grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities (NEH).

Financial assistance was also provided by longtime friend of UCLA, Charles Steinmetz through the Steinmetz Family Trust.

Staff assistance and computing infrastructure was provided by UCLA's Academic Technology Services (ATS) and UCLA's Institute for Digital Research and Education (IDRE). For more information on its Humanities, Arts and Architecture, Social and Information Sciences Core (IDRE-HASIS) visit IDRE.

Permission to undertake the project and support in Luxor was generously granted by Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities of the Arab Republic of Egypt (SCA). We would especially like to thank Dr. Mansour Boraik, Chief Inspector of the SCA in Luxor for his help at Karnak.

The Digital Karnak Project would also like to thank the members of the Centre franco-égyptien d'étude des temples de Karnak (CFEETK) who offered invaluable advice and consultation in Luxor.

Photographs of the "Lateran obelisk" were supplied by Dr. Hendrik Dey.

Photographs of the "Istanbul obelisk" were gathered using copyright-free photographs posted on the internet.
