Jewish Cultures Mapped (JCM) | A web-based platform developed by Da’at Hamakom

Jewish Cultures Mapped (JCM) is an interactive web-based map currently being developed by Daat-Hamakom. It is based on innovative digital-mapping and information visualization technologies designed to explore and experience Jewish cultures in their historical development from a perspective of time and space. It was designed as a flexible platform for incorporating, presenting and sharing data from existing databases and archives.
The map visualizes dynamic relations and trajectories characteristic of the Jewish world through a uniquely designed interface combining a map with a timeline. It will present multimedia documentary information,including sound,images, and film, along with quantitative geographic information (GIS).
The map is intended to serve as a context for worldwide scholars and experts of all cultural fields to generate and share time-space based information. JCM provides Easy accessibility of high quality content to a wide range of publics, such as university researchers, schoolteachers, students and laypersons searching for information in a platform that differs from extant searching and data mining engines.
