timeline, GIS, and Rome


Here's a timeline I think you'll be interested to see. It's from a project at the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities. The problem being addressed is to show changes to the water systems in ancient Rome over a period of years. Link below.

ATH Community,
Hello. Please, note the following announcement for a newly added, on-line, refereed article available via
The Waters of Rome project.
If you have not looked at the resources there in the last several months, I'd encourage you to see the relatively new version of the Timeline (with Typology as well as time period selection options) available via the primary URL:
, after you check out the article.
Cheers,
Worthy

Kay Bea Jones, "Rome's Uncertain Tiberscape: Tevereterno and the Urban Commons"

THE WATERS OF ROME, an occasional on-line publication of refereed articles that investigate the history of water and its infrastructure in the city of Rome, is pleased to announce publication of "Rome's Uncertain Tiberscape: Tevereterno and the Urban Commons", by Kay Bea Jones, Associate Professor of Architecture at the Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University. In this article, Prof. Jones examines the potential significance of a multi-disciplary art project, "Tevereterno" on the Tiber River in Rome to expand environmental awareness in the urban context.

This article is available as a free pdf file that you can download at:

THE WATERS OF ROME is published by ?Aquae Urbis Romae: the Waters of the City of Rome? - an interactive cartographic history of the relationship between hydrological and hydraulic systems and their impact on the urban development of Rome, Italy, from 753 BC to the present day. Aquae Urbis Romae examines the intersection between natural hydrological elements including springs, rain, streams, marshes, and the Tiber River, and hydraulic elements including aqueducts, fountains, sewers, bridges, conduits, etc., that together create a single integrated water infrastructure system for Rome. http://www.iath.virginia.edu/waters.

Scholars are invited to submit articles in English (or Italian with a publishable English translation provided by the author) on any aspect of the hydrological or hydraulic history of Rome, from the prehistoric to the present day. Articles that investigate water and water infrastructure within a social, cultural, technological, or administrative context are particularly welcome. All articles under consideration will be read by the editor and at least two outside reviewers who are experts in Roman topography, archaeology, history of technology, geography, urban or architectural history. Authors shall be responsible for obtaining copyright permissions for all maps and images included with their article, and each author retains copyright for any work published at ?Aquae Urbis Romae: the Waters of the City of Rome?.
