Introduction
Eras & Empires Timeline >

ECAI IRAQ is a temporal-spatial portal into existing digital resources about history, cultural sites, archaeological excavations and heritage preservation initiatives. Users can access these information sources using interactive, time-enabled thematic maps.

The data, that can be displayed for the Iraqi and Mesopotamian material culture, is found on hundreds of web sites around the world. ECAI IRAQ catalogs this material in a dynamic database and provides retrieval of information from these distant servers. Owners of these resources retain control of their content and the ability to update it at any time.

By using time and space to integrate the large number of digital resources, ECAI IRAQ attempts to address one aspect of the current crisis of Iraqi cultural heritage.
