The Pompeii Bibliography and Mapping Resource Project

Further development of a web-based prototype platform that would allow researchers to access both geospatial and bibliographic information relevant to Pompeii.

The Pompeii Bibliography and Mapping Resource (PBMR) is a web-based research tool composed of three parts: 1. a bibliographic database and full-text document repository, 2. a Geographical Information System (GIS) and 3. a user interface. The PBMR creates a unique and powerful environment for humanities research by bringing together the full array of disparate sources about Pompeii and making them instantly available to the public and academics alike. Additionally, the online GIS permits users to make custom maps in their browser or download the core files for more advanced analyses. Most importantly, the user interface fuses spatial and bibliographic search tools, allowing users to ask questions about both the thematic and spatial relationships of a particular subject. Finally, although focused on the novel means of delivering the scholarship of a particular archaeological site, the specific content of the project does not limit its implementation for other subjects in the humanities.
