Brown Bag Research Series - Digital Mapping: The Old Moroccan Quarter of Jerusalem

Date: Wednesday, October 2nd 2019

Time: 13:00 - 14:00

Place: LLC 1


The second Brown Bag Research Series event of the semester will be presented by Dr. Maryvelma Smith O'Neil. 


Jerusalem is comprised of twenty-five archaeological strata and nearly thirty major historical periods. It is a treasure of historical, archaeological, human and religious significance possessing enormous symbolic value and evoking deep passion. The Hara al-Maghariba (Moroccan Quarter), which was integral to that pattern from 1193 until 1967, is the focus of a pilot digital mapping project.


The next phase will digitally map the 3D Illés Relief of Jerusalem (1873). As a dynamic digital map-cum-virtual archive, accessible through an interactive website, it will create and display new narratives of engagement for stakeholders, policy makers and a global audience.
