*Historical GIS of South-Eastern Europe*
Dimitar Iliev, Maria Baramova & Grigor Boykov (Sofia University «St
Kliment Ohridsky»)

The H-GIS of South-Eastern Europe is a project developed by a
multidisciplinary research team of historians, archaeologists,
classicists, epigraphers, geographers, urbanists, GIS and IT specialists
from the University of Sofia. The project currently focuses on Thrace
between Antiquity to World War I. The GIS system allows the
visualization of objects identified for each historical period and the
selection and modeling of layers of particular objects and particular
periods for a wide range of research purposes. The team will present the
platform's functionalities and describe the general methodology of the
project, the main issues and the solutions proposed for them.


This seminar is in association with Sunoikisis Digital Classics
programme, and will be livestreamed on YouTube at

*NB* the livestream will start strictly on the half hour, so please try
