Ancient World Mapping Center launches demo version of “Antiquity à la carte” mapping application

April 2, 2012 in Antiquity À-la-carte, News

AWMC unveiled the demo version of its new “à la carte mapping” program this past weekend at the 2012 meetings of CAMWS in Baton Rouge, Lousiana. Engineered by Ryan Horne, a Ph.D. student in Ancient History at UNC and a cartographic research assistant at AWMC, the “Antiquity à la carte” application allows the user to design and populate maps of the ancient world. The phase one version, available here, focuses on the Greek world; the full version, when rolled out, will cover the entire Mediterranean basin. AWMC is grateful to UNC ITS for supporting this project, and in particular our colleague Joe Ryan, Humanities Research Associate at UNC.
