Where Matters: Spatial Histories of the Russian Empire

Where Matters: Spatial Histories of the Russian Empire

Welcome! This is the primary home of the Imperiia Project: a historical GIS that explores the spatial history of the Russian Empire. 

In slightly more expansive terms, our project documents, interrogates, visualizes, and interprets the history of Imperial Russia. It is a piece of historical scholarship. It is an example of digital history, an experiment in new forms of analysis, and a laboratory for developing new genres for narrating the past.
