ChronoAtlas is a completely free
and fully interactive
historical atlas of the world. The site allows you to browse the entire globe at any point in history and see boundaries changing over time and cities and other features appearing on the map at the time they were founded. The site is also 100% interactive, you can contribute your own data: meaning your own cities, battles, and photos of historic places and events, and you can also draw boundaries of any historical kingdom you want, or edit those drawn by others if they are inaccurate.
For the fastest viewing experience, we recommend that you install either Google Earth
or the Google Earth web browser plug-in
If you don’t have either of these then ChronoAtlas will automatically redirect you to our
more basic map viewer
. But in the long run, we highly recommend using the site with Google Earth. Google Earth is also a
application and should only take a couple of
minutes to install.
