Screen Shot 2015-10-27 at 6.52.06 AM

The Origins of Doha team have developed a new interactive tool that allows you to see parts of Doha develop and change over time. Historic maps, aerial photographs, old video footage, and information from the archaeological excavations and building recording have been embedded in DOHA, the Doha Online Historical Atlas.

We are looking for feedback on how to improve DOHA, AND for contributions of any photographs, maps, or other media and information.

Please use the following form to help “crowdsource” information about Doha’s past and present:

Geospatial-aware media, combined with several historic maps of Doha.

Georeferenced photos, videos, and more, embedded in historic aerial photos of Doha.
