The Imperiia Project: a spatial history of the Russian Empire

locating unknown places

Unsure where X is on the map? (Ha! Get it?) No problem. If you are looking for a village (without a church), on the Imperiia map, toggle on the relevant layer. Make sure it is not only toggled on, but selected. (The layer will be highlighted in gray.) Then click in the search box at the bottom left of the display. Enter the term you are looking for (be precise!) and click "search." The result will be highlighted in yellow. You may need to zoom to the right area to notice the highlighted feature. You may find it helpful to toggle off unnecessary layers as well.
