Welcome to Histopedia!

This month 500 years ago Gerardus Mercator was born, the man who wrote history by introducing the word “Atlas” for his publication of maps of the world.

March 2012 is therefore the perfect time to start a blog on Histopedia – a combination of maps, timelines, historic events and trends. To see what Histopedia is about please watch the video (click the image on the left).

In the upcoming months we will inform you via this blog about Histopedia’s features and status of development. We would love to hear thoughts and comments as we go on so we can make the perfect platform that world history deserves.
