"Digitale Kartenwerkstatt Altes Reich" (DigiKAR) - digital map workshop Old Empire

The cooperation project develops and tests concepts for the collection, modeling and visualization of site-specific historical information from the early modern Holy Roman Empire (of the German nation). It thus makes a contribution to historical research onthe Old Empire as a space of divided and overlapping rulership, as well as to the further development of digital analysis and visualization of historical data with temporal-spatial properties. Movements of people, things and ideas are not only examined and visualized as physical mobility potentials in complex spaces, but also with regard to their belonging to different, sometimes competing, social, legal and dominant spaces of the Empire Association.
