Roundup of Resources on Ancient Geography – AWOL: Most recently updated 18 November 2020Mapa Mundi Babilônico encontrado por Hormuzd Rassam em Abu Habba (Sippar) - aprox. século VI a.C. - British Museum: BM 92687

Esta é uma lista de links para projetos digitais que tratam da geografia e do mundo antigo. Não tem a pretensão de ser completa ou abrangente, mas quer dar aos leitores uma noção da variedade de materiais atualmente acessíveis.

Included in the following list are links to digital project dealing with geography and the ancient world. It is an eclectic list, culled mostly from entries in AWOL. It has no pretentions of being complete or comprehensive, but is offered to give readers a sense of the range of materials currently accessible.

Geocodificação: localidades bíblicas no Google Earth

Bible Geocoding: The location of every identifiable place mentioned in the Bible.

Bible Geocoding

Complete Bible. Also available: KMZs arranged by book and by chapter. Turn book or chapter layers on and off to see patterns across the Bible. Use Google Earth to open KML and KMZ files.

Atlas: the atlas lists all the places alphabetically, complete with thumbnails, verses, and photos (when available).

Overlays: overlays for Google Earth let you see how maps of ancient and modern Jerusalem fit satellite imagery.

Bodies of Water: download a KML with outlines of the most of the bodies of water in the Bible.

Photos: about 10,000 photos of places in the Bible. These photos use the Flickr and Panoramio APIs and are thus of varying quality—many of them just happen to be of people or places near the ancient locations. But a lot of the photos are quite helpful: see Beersheba, Capernaum, and Ur, for example. I recommend for professional-quality photos of places in the Holy Land. Todd Bolen has done a fantastic job taking and collating photos.

Geografia do ANE com o Google Earth

Google Earth Exercise for Biblical Geography

Ele começa dizendo:
In the previous post, I provided an exercise for learning how to use Google Maps in the service of biblical geography. I’ve now prepared another exercise for learning how to use Google Earth. Google Maps has incorporated some features of Google Earth and vice versa, but there are features in Earth that remain unique and particularly helpful for biblical studies.

O Mar Morto está morrendo, mas ainda pode ser salvo

Veja o show de slides na Scientific American: o Mar Morto está perdendo cerca de 1 metro de profundidade por ano, com a diminuição contínua de sua água.

The Dead Sea Is Disappearing, but Could Be Saved [Slide Show]

By Mark Fischetti – April 4, 2011

The surface of the Dead Sea, already 424 meters below sea level, is falling by a meter a year. Jordanians to the east, Israelis to the west, and Syrians and Lebanese to the north are pumping so much freshwater from the Jordan River that almost none reaches the sea any more. Israel and Jordan are also siphoning water from the lake to extract valuable minerals, hastening the decline. Photojournalist Eitan Haddok has traveled from Paris to the Middle East many times to document the sea’s retreat, as scientists try to understand the repercussions. Here are some additional Haddok images and insights to consider.

West Bank and East Jerusalem Searchable Map

West Bank and East Jerusalem Searchable Map, diz o título do post de 21/11/2009 em Biblical Studies and Technological Tools, escrito por Mark Vitalis Hoffman (mgvh)

E no site da UCLA, com data de 20 de novembro de 2009, leio:

Archaeologists publish first map of contested sites in Middle East
A team of archaeologists from UCLA, USC, Israel and Palestinian territories has developed the first map detailing Israeli archaeological activity in the West Bank and Jerusalem – much of it never publicly disclosed. The fully searchable online map, which serves as a window into thousands of years worth of archaeological sites in the Holy Lands, has won the 2009 Open Archaeology Prize from American Schools of Oriental Research, the main organization for archaeologists working in the Middle East…

Recursos digitais para cartografia bíblica

Faça uma visita ao blog Biblical Studies and Technological Tools de mgvh ou Mark G. Vitalis Hoffman e veja a interessante série de posts sobre os recursos digitais úteis para cartografia bíblica. É só ler os posts sobre digital resources for biblical mapping.

E, amigo, não se preocupe: na minha opinião, um dia os blogs – alguns blogs, claro – ainda terão o reconhecimento acadêmico que merecem. O potencial de um blog acadêmico é grande, mas, por um lado, o lixo que se acumula na Internet parece não ter fim – e isto inclui os blogs – e, por outro lado, a esclerose da academia é mal antigo e conhecido.

Por que falo isso?

Por causa de seu post Will this be on the test? (Is blogging a worthy academic exercise?)

Persépolis virtual


Persepolis Reconstruction

The goal of this endeavour is to bring Persepolis back to life – not only to show the complexities of its urban design but also to illuminate the wealth of details to a wide spectrum of both professionals and interested laymen alike. The presented virtual reconstruction is based on the documentation obtained from the excavations led by E. Herzfeld, F. Krefter and E. F. Schmidt. Especially helpful to our project was the tremendous efforts of the architect, Friedrich Krefter, who in 1933 oversaw the excavations of this bygone empire and from 1963 to 1970 established a set of standards for Persepolis and therewith, a wealth of reconstruction drawings and two scale models of the great terraces the Achaemenid residential palace including its volumes, the great entrance vestibules and interiors are all standing once again before our eyes.

Our work has integrated with exactitude all existing and substantiated knowledge of Persepolis. Where personal interpretation was required, we have carefully weighed the suggestions of the archaeologists involved in the aforementioned excavations and have opted for what we believe to be the best solution from the various possibilities.

It is already possible through this virtual reconstruction to step back into the Persian Empire of the sixth century B.C. In the very near future a more advanced phase of this project will be realized. In that phase one will be able to once again visit the great terrace, the monumental buildings, the palatial residences, the public squares and the private gardens from every angle and perspective.

To digitally reconstruct these complex structures in their entirety including the vast richness of detail is an undertaking that will require a great deal of time to accomplish. The specific buildings can only gradually be created and the great terrace will be built step by step. What we at this point in time are presenting to you represents only the preliminary fruits of our labour and will be both qualitatively and quantitatively further developed – the results of which can be monitored through our updates on this website.
