The Imperiia Project: a spatial history of the Russian Empire

Who We Are

Poring over maps, designing databases, combing through endless volumes of half-baked statistics, chasing down the coordinates of long-forgotten monasteries, extracting itineraries from rambling travel accounts, performing spatial joins, massaging data... the work of compiling a historical GIS takes a great many forms.

Most combine some measure of gruntwork with a much smaller measure of glory.
