Lord of the Rings Project, commonly shortened LotrProject, is a creative web project dedicated to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. It is perhaps most known for the extensive and ever updating genealogy, the historical timeline of Middle-Earth and the statistics of the population of Middle-Earth.
LotrProject was published in January 2012 by Emil Johansson with the genealogy as the only feature. To much surprise it gained a lot of attention which spurred the development of the site. Since then the project has expanded to become a creative outlet for Emil and now features several interactive Tolkien related projects. As an example, Emil saw it as a perfect opportunity to learn how to create an Android App.
The development of LotrProject consists of two equally important parts; perfection and innovation. A lot of the information on LotrProject need proper references and additional fact checking. This is an ever ongoing process of ensuring the quality of the site. Innovation naturally means coming up with more creative ideas to expand the project.
