Digital Atlas of Roman and Medieval Civilizations online

A team of Harvard undergraduates, graduate students, research scholars and one professor have created the Digital Atlas of Roman and Medieval Civilizations, a mapping and spatial analysis of the Roman and medieval worlds using the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) information system.

The site allows users to generate original maps based on maps of Roman military installations, roads, shrines, mines, and villas, study the rise and fall of empires, and follow the development of the medieval church using databases based on Google Earth.
