The University of Oregon in association with Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster and Alexander von Humboldt Foundation have developed Mapping History–an online database of maps “that is designed to provide interactive and animated representations of fundamental historical problems and/or illustrations of historical events, developments, and dynamics.”

This project has been supervised here at the University largely by Professors John Nicols and James Mohr. Professor Nicols contributed maps focused on the Roman period and Professor Mohr with maps focused on American social history in the 19th century. Additional UO contributors to this project include Professors David Luebke, Ina Asim, and Alex Dracobly.
