Digital epigraphy refers to the use of digital technologies to study, record, preserve and publish ancient Egyptian inscriptions and reliefs. This field combines traditional epigraphic practices (making facsimile drawings of texts and images carved or painted on stone surfaces of monuments, such as temple walls and stelae) with digital tools to enhance the accuracy and efficiency of the recording process. Digital epigraphy makes use of high-resolution photographs and/or photogrammetry models, and drawing tablets produced by Wacom, iPad and Samsung.
