Imago Tusciae
The Imago Tusciae project catalogued cartographic information available in the State Archives of Siena so to offer free access to geographical maps and data's related to the historical State of Siena and other area's in Tuscany. In the future, the database should include also digitized maps and cartography on Siena and Tuscany available in Italy and other countries too. There are currently (October 2011) some 2000 maps available, which can be searched by means of a free text search option. Each image comes with a bibliographical description and notes that informs the users about available contextual information. There is a link to Google maps that indicates the current location on the historical place itself. A zooming option is available. Images can not be downloaded. The Imago Tusciae project was developed at the Geography Department of the University of Sienna.
