Stanford’s Orbis – a historical trip planner

November 22, 2013

Orbis is an interactive simulator that takes the Roman Empire and maps out how long a journey would take to get from one destination to another using a variety of methods – including calculating what it would be to take the fastest route, the cheapest route, etc.

Aside from folks who are just into Rome, it’s pretty cool because you can easily get an idea for how much distance folks could theoretically cover, parallel it to other places, times, or fantasy settings.
