Mapping history

The chrono-geographical database of the history of the Grand Tourism in Dalmatia in the 18th and the 19th century is an interdisciplinary effort which encompasses three processes: research, design and programming. The aim is to transform the collected data into information, so that it could represent more than just a collection.
The chrono-geographical database is thus a research tool which enables a new methodological approach.

The database is based on the ‘author – place – travelogue’ relation. It comprises books, images, photographs, essays and letters created as a result of the direct experience of a place (Dalmatia), from the perspective of the author (traveler).

The selection of the spatial and temporal criteria enables a number of possibilities for the classification and comparison of travelogues, which offer new research adventures.

By expanding its spatial and temporal frame, it can continue to grow.
