    Stanford has created what is essentially google maps for the ancient Roman empire! Finally, I can now find the fastest route from Pompeii to Britannia!

    ORBIS allows us to express Roman communication costs in terms of both time and expense. By simulating movement along the principal routes of the Roman road network, the main navigable rivers, and hundreds of sea routes in the Mediterranean, Black Sea and coastal Atlantic, this interactive model reconstructs the duration and financial cost of travel in antiquity. It's like googlemaps for ancient rome.

    ORBIS is a Stanford project mapping travel in the Roman Empire. "The Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World reconstructs the time cost and financial expense associated with a wide range of different types of travel in antiquity. The model is based on a simplified version of the giant network of cities, roads, rivers and sea lanes that framed movement across the Roman Empire. It broadly reflects conditions around 200 CE."
