ORBIS: the Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World

The system calculates the distance from a city to another one, according to faster path, or lower cost.

Go to “Mapping ORBIS”, It draws the path and create many different maps and graphs (in “Map gallery”). It’s a pity that the Emperors did not have this system 🙂
