Dictionary of Points

We have created a database of approximately two millions georeferenced places which covers Europe, the Southern Mediterranean countries, and the Americas.

We have left in Navigocorpus the original name of the place as it appears in the source, and added an extra field with the geo-referenced code – the same one designates, for instance, Leghorn, Livorno and Livourne. This choice allows us to bypass all problems connected with the different spellings and languages of the sources.

By exporting the selected data from Navigocopus into a spread-sheet and importing them in cartographic software it is possible to visualize data on a rough map almost instantly, before eventually producing a more elaborated map.
