Genghis Khan and the optiportal

For those of you paying attention in the back, the link I twitted about searching for the tomb of Genghis Khan, makes reference to the use of an Optiportal to display the results of the findings:

Explains Lin : "If you have a large burial, that's going to have an impact on the landscape. To find Khan's tomb, we'll be using remote sensing techniques and satellite imagery to take digital pictures of the ground in the surrounding region, which we'll be able to display on Calit2's 287-million pixel HIPerSpace display wall. ...

which sounds an interesting use of the technology for large scale visualisation work.
