Would you like to publish your archive online?

  • You have a substantial archive of items that can be referenced by time and place, for example images, maps, documents, journals, etc.
  • You have been interested in putting it online for some time now, but the project has been overwhelming and you don't know where to start.
  • Or, perhaps, you already have a project online, but would like it to be more interactive and user-friendly.

We have developed a solution to present just this kind of information in an interactive and intuitive manner. It allows you to move both through time and space, and experience change over time.

Map Georeferencing

Geo-Referenced Maps

We take great care in geo-referencing your historical maps, ensuring accurate alignment of historical features with modern maps, thus allowing them to become an effective part of the interactive experience.

Time-Referenced Content

Custom Georeferenced Public Map (optional)

Data Migration (optional)

We will work closely with you to import historical data from previous systems you may have used. This usually means providing us with a database dump or spreadsheets of your data, which we will then use to populate your project.

If your data structure is simple, we can provide a spreadsheet template that you can fill in yourselves, reducing your data migration costs substantially.
