The State of Israel has begun a land settlement process in East Jerusalem, for the first time since 1967. Land settlement is a procedure of ascertaining the rights to a certain piece of land, measuring and determining its boundaries precisely and recording them in the register of rights (“tabu”). This is expected to impact all landowners and those who live there.
The mapping on this site deals with the plots that are currently in the settlement process, their location and their status. The trilingual map combines several layers of geographic information on the basis of the government website, official publications of the State of Israel and information provided as part of a freedom of information request.
