The latest preliminary report now appears on the TMP website.
http://www.thebanmappingproject.com/about/progress_19.html

Some points of interest:

The number of rooms in KV 5 now stands at 128.

"We have published a new edition of "KV 5: A Preliminary Report," adding sixteen pages of photographs, drawings, plans, and text that update our work in this fascinating mausoleum since the first publication in 2000. A third edition may well prove necessary in a few more years, as KV 5 continues to grow." (quoting the site)
This is the report we were talking about in one of the book threads Very Happy

Here's a list of publications:

There's also info about the visitors center and digital imagery.

The digital project sounds really interesting:
"The TMP's photographers, Francis Dzikowski and Matjaz Kacicnic, have completed taking comprehensive digital photographs of the walls of KV tombs currently open to the public (or likely to be opened soon). This photographic survey will soon be added to the website, and users will be able to call up both general photographs of tomb walls, details of scenes, and even individual hieroglyphs for study."
