The great possibilities offered by digital cartography have made it an essential
tool for investigating and disseminating knowledge of the Roman world. Joining
efforts exponentially increases the potential of results from research and it is
increasingly evident that important achievements require international networks
of researchers with common goals and agreements regarding the methodology
to be applied to their work.
Given this situation, it is of vital importance for the studies of settlement,
communication networks and economic elements, toponymy and archaeological
topography, as well as studies of the territory and landscape, that form the basis
of many of these cartographic processes should use commonly agreed
methodologies to allow, collectively, interaction and the construction of maps of
the Roman world, exploring the huge potential offered by Linked Open Data. A
network needs to be set up between the different research groups so they can
reach agreements regarding the mapping of the elements under study and, at
this point, evaluate the research being carried out and provide a forum for
For these reasons, the International TIR-FOR Commission is organising the
FIRST TIR-FOR SYMPOSIUM, an event to encourage reflection and discussion
regarding the inextricable interaction between research into settlement, territory
and archaeological topography and digital cartography. The Symposium is
therefore open to researchers interested in this field.
