We revisit the Jordan-Wigner transformation, showing that-rather than a non-local isomorphism between different fermionic and spin Hamiltonian operators-it can be viewed in terms of local identities relating different realizations of projection operators. The construction works for arbitrary dimension of the ambient lattice, as well as of the on-site vector space, generalizing Jordan-Wigner's result. It provides a direct mapping of local quantum spin problems into local fermionic problems (and vice versa), under the (rather physical) requirement that the latter are described by Hamiltonians which are even products of fermionic operators. As an application, we specialize to mappings between constrained-fermion models and spin-1 models on chains, obtaining in particular some new integrable spin Hamiltonian, and the corresponding ground-state energies.
