Chronas is a history project linking Wikipedia and Wikidata with a chronological and cartographical view.
What is Chronas?
The name Chronas is a combination of Chronos and Atlas indicating the chronological and cartographical approach of the history application.
The initial idea in mid-2014 was to add a time slider to a Google Maps like application, making it possible to travel back in time: watching realms being founded, grow and disappear again. The goal was to get a better understanding of how the world’s history is interconnected. What happened in Asia when Rome dominated Europe? What happened in Arabia when Kublai Khan proclaimed himself the emperor of China?
At a later stage it was decided not only to use political land boundaries but also to add religious and cultural context to a given moment in time. Then markers were added of people living at the selected year, then markers for cities, buildings, battles… later again, analytical capabilities and an interactive image gallery. As a foundation, our local Chronas database contains over 31 223 datalayers with about 4.6 Gigabyte of data to explore. Have a look at the development blog, if you are interested in the implementations.
The framework is set for the next phase: to make the content of Chronas editable in the way of OpenStreetMap or Wikipedia. Chronas’ moderators will have the rights to add and edit Wikipedia page links and all other data such as the coloring by ruler, religion and culture of a specific time period.
