Jerusalem | Historical Database of the Old City of Jerusalem

Jordanian Royal Scientific Society, ongoing
At the request of the Jordanian Royal Scientific Society, the Institute is completing the computerized historical database for the Old City of Jerusalem initiated by the Center for Urban Development Studies. The database documents the evolution of the Old City since 1800 as an open-ended structure composed of independent modules grouped along a time-line:

• A description of the history and architecture of monuments.
• The social, economic and topographical evolution of the Old City since 1800.
• United Nations and UNESCO resolutions pertaining to the Old City.

Each module is formatted independently, in accordance with its topic, and is equipped with a search engine that allows users to define the parameters of the information sought. Movement across modules is possible when information is cross-referenced. A beta version of the site is coming soon. Back to Library
