" In a first phase, DARMC offers a series of maps and geodatabases bearing on multiple aspects of Roman and medieval civilization in the broadest terms. We have drawn on the cartographic achievements of our predecessors, most notably from Richard J. A. Talbert’s magnificent Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World(2000), the remarkable fruit of an international research effort. DARMC includes the majority of the cultural features of the Barrington Atlas at a higher level of geographic accuracy and detail. We build on that achievement and continue it in close collaboration with Pleiades, the online gazeteer and bibliography of classical sites. As suchDARMC will allow spatial access of new clarity, functionality and ease to the rich textual data assembled in Pleiades. Conversely, the written materials synthesized in Pleiades can be envisaged in their full spatial and visual dimension in DARMC." From the home page.
