The Associated Press is reporting that Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History has signed an agreement with Google Mexico to promote archaeological and historical sites in a bid to revive tourism following the swine flu epidemic. The plan uses several elements of the Google platform, including placing maps of archaeological sites and directions to them on Google Earth.

The institute has started a channel on YouTube at www.youtube.com/INAHTV. The government agency said it is working on more interactive and virtual tours, including 360-degree and rotating videos of pyramids and other sites. The Institute's 173 archaeological sites and 116 museums were closed for more than a week at the height of the swine flu epidemic, but reopened in early May.
