Mapping the Blitz

On 3rd June Conor Graham and Dr Heather Montgomery spoke to the Royal Geographical Society on our Mapping the Blitz Project.

The presentation below provides an insight into the ‘Web Mapping’ Geographical Information Science (GIS) techniques that are being used for the first time to identify and locate each of the Belfast Blitz’s casualties in the city and across Northern Ireland, through a project led by Queen’s University Belfast in partnership with the Northern Ireland War Memorial Museum.

An interactive and freely accessible web map will be launched in the near future and will provide a new and unique overview of the physical damage and human cost of the Belfast Blitz.

For more information about the project please get in touch.
