Map of Jewish Calcutta

Map of Jewish Calcutta

The map is based on the land use map prepared by National Atlas and Thematic Mapping Organisation,Kolkata(1998). Geographical Information System (GIS) software Mapinfo(Version 7.0) and Google Maps were used for preparing the maps. The Calcutta City boundary was digitized from the NATMO map in the GIS software. Then the ward boundaries were taken into consideration to get a rough idea about where the Jews primarily lived and the key Jewish sites. Demarcation of the important institutions were done with the help of Google Maps. These were put together to get the final map. The maps were prepared by Debika Banerji.
