The Bomb Sight project, originally known as Stepping into Time, brings World War 2 bomb damage maps into the digital world using web and mobile mapping technology. Built around the London Bomb Census Maps, showing where bombs fell during the 1940-1 London Blitz, it successfully integrates diverse archival sources via open source mapping. Bomb locations were extracted and stored within a Geographic Information System (GIS) on top of which was built an interactive web-mapping application integrating memories and photos, plus a mobile phone application for use as you walk around the streets of London. The project was funded by Jisc and led by Dr Catherine (Kate) Jones, University of Portsmouth, in partnership with The National Archives, Location Insights Ltd and Geobits Ltd.
