The TimeMap Project is based at the Spatial Science Innovation Unit (SSIU) at the University of Sydney. It was originally conceived by Dr Ian Johnson, Senior Research Fellow at the SSIU, who has managed the project from 1996 - present. Software development has mainly been carried out between the University of Sydney and ALOV Software in Saratov, Russia. More recently, development work is being undertaken at the University of California Berkeley as part of a long-term cooperation between the TimeMap project and the Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative (www.ecai.org). Other members of the TimeMap Open Source Community are also working on developments which we hope to incorporate at a later date.
The Sustainable Object Repositories for Research and Teaching (SORRT) project, part of the Australian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories (APSR), developed new middleware out of the TimeMap project's TMJava work. The SORRT middleware ISpheres provides a compatible distributed interoperable server solution and can be downloaded from SourceForge where it was released as Open Source software in 2005.
