    Published:
The Europeana eCloud is a multiple-projector spatially-interactive browser that displayed different sets of archival data allowing users to re-discover personal cultural histories. The application derived its data from crowdsourced World War I online databases through the use of a common web-based API, which provided the ability to gain access to the most recent data as the public databases were updated.

The eCloud is a collaborative project between the Europeana digital archive initiative and The City University of Hong Kong Centre for Applied Computing and Interactive Media, Applied Laboratory for Interactive Visualization and Embodiment (ALiVE) and Museum Victoria.
