CaseMap

CaseMap debuted in 1998 as a database solution for law firms practicing complex litigation. At its core, CaseMap is a database connecting two spheres of information: facts and objects. The facts spreadsheet is used to generate a time-line of undisputed facts for a case. The objects spreadsheet functions as a parent directory for multiple child-spreadsheets; each child-spreadsheet indexes a sphere of data relevant to a case (i.e. persons, places, pleadings, physical evidence, etc.).
