World-Historical Gazetteer

This is a project to create content, standards and digital infrastructure for a World-Historical Gazetteer (WHG): a spatially and temporally comprehensive index of significant world historical place names (a Spine), and a system for collaborative digital and data-driven historical scholarship at the global scale (an Ecosystem).  It focuses significantly but not exclusively on the centuries since 1500, so as to dovetail with synergistic efforts devoted to the ancient and medieval world.
