In the aggregate, our model simulations make it possible to reconfigure conventional maps of the Roman Empire to express the relative cost of transfers from or to a central point as distance. This perspective captures the structural properties of the imperial system as a whole by identifying the relative position of particular elements of the network and illustrating the impact of travel speed and especially transport prices on overall connectivity. Distance cartograms show that due to massive cost differences between aquatic and terrestrial modes of transport, peripheries were far more remote from the center in terms of price than in terms of time. Due to an unexpectedly high volume of traffic to the site, performance of the routing map and interactive cartogram are not what they should be. If you experience delays performing route calculations or rendering the map, you can try refreshing the map by zooming in or out.

Day view of Manhattan, New York, USA In 2006 I shot our very first spherical aerial panorama, from which the AirPano project started, in the beautiful place of the Colorado and the San Juan rivers confluence (USA): The result was overwhelming – by looking at the large screen one had a total illusion of flying over the canyon. And so we decided to continue our experiments. The next attempt was made in 2007 above the island of Manhattan. I remember this photo shoot by one funny detail: there were no headphones for passengers in the helicopter's cabin.

Ancient World Mapping Center The center supports a variety of ongoing projects including: Current Projects: Antiquity À-la-carte The Antiquity À-la-carte application is an interactive digital map of the ancient world built using open source software and data derived from The Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World and Pleiades. The project seeks to make an interactive, manipulable map of the ancient Mediterranean world intended primarily for students and their instructors. The application allows for an extensive range of custom criteria that can tailor the map to meet almost any needs from the archaic to the late Roman periods.

AWMC: Strabo Map x The Strabo Application is a georeferenced, interactive digital map of the Ancient Mediterranean World to accompany the text of the Geography translated by Duane W. Roller and published by Cambridge University Press (2014). The application is produced by the Ancient World Mapping Center (AWMC) at The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and marks all locatable settlements, features, and peoples mentioned by Strabo, as determined by the translator and presented according to his specifications. The application works best with Firefox, Chrome, or Safari.

The Glaciers of the Himalayas Home > The Glaciers > Everest Region > Khumbu The Khumbu glacier paves the way to Everest Base Camp, and its spectacular icefall is well-known to climbers. With elevations ranging from 4900 m to 7600 m, it is the highest glacier in the world. Our most recent gigapixel photograph of this glacier was captured in the spring of 2012, from the Pumori viewpoint. Photographer Norman Dyhrenfurth joined the Swiss Expedition to Everest in 1952. Resources for ancient world geography Keeping abreast of the ever-expanding set of resources relevant to the geography and mapping of the ancient world is a Herculean task and this page does not attempt to do that, rather it aims to provide a basic set of initial references for the community. AWMC is always happy to consult with scholars and community members seeking to find certain, specialized resources. Print Resources Compendia W. Smith. 1854.

Then turn the information into a mobile barcode, one that can be printed on stationery, advertising or packaging, a t-shirt, or even built into a website or a Facebook page - and read by an i-nigma enabled mobile device. Creating a mobile barcode is easy. Select what kind of barcode you want to create (QR Code or Data Matrix), then type in the web address (URL) or text you want to encode, and watch the mobile barcode being created, instantly.

NOS Special Projects - NOAA Historical Shoreline Survey Viewer What is a Shoreline Survey? Shoreline surveys (also called coastal surveys, T-Sheets or TP-Sheets, and shoreline manuscripts) refer to topographic sheets compiled from maps derived in the field with a plane table, in the office from aerial photos, or a combination of the two methods. These shoreline surveys are the authoritative definition of the U.S. high-water line and may also include details such as roads, prominent buildings, and other features along the coast. Herodotus Timemap Book 1, Ch. 1 This is the display of the inquiry of Herodotus of Halicarnassus, so that things done by man not be forgotten in time, and that great and marvelous deeds, some displayed by the Hellenes, some by the barbarians, not lose their glory, including among others what was the cause of their waging war on each other.The Persian learned men say that the Phoenicians were the cause of the dispute. These (they say) came to our seas from the sea which is called Red, and having settled in the country which they still occupy, at once began to make long voyages. Among other places to which they carried Egyptian and Assyrian merchandise, they came to Argos,which was at that time preeminent in every way among the people of what is now called Hellas.
