Maps that tell (hi)stories

Our motto: All events on earth have a geographic reference and can therefore be depicted on a map.

Even the most complex interdependencies (with historical roots) can be easily explained with storymaps*.


Time travel | reconstructions | language areas | developments | life paths | spatial identities


Based on geographic information systems and interactive web maps, we design and develop individual solutions for knowledge transfer, presentations, publications, lectures and analyses for research and educational institutions, public authorities and museums, among others.
