a new effort at geocoding from the Peutinger Map

Some maps were never meant to be georeferenced, and the Peutinger Map is one of them.  Here are some nicely  scanned versions of its sections.

But I do respect the efforts that some have made to scrape off the locations, do some creative and researched geocoding, and provide scholars with a digital tool that may provide an insight or two.   This is a new one that I just learned about, the Omnes Viae.  Locations are based on Richard Talbert’s work.
