Announced in late August, the Ancient World Mapping Center's Strabo Map was built with the same technology that powers their Antiquity À-la-carte customizable mapping tool and, like it, includes data developed by and shared with Pleiades and its community. The Strabo Map plots the 3,000+ locatable geographical and cultural features mentioned in the Geography and features links for each such feature into the AWMC spatial database, Pleiades and the Pelagios Project network.The electronic version of Roller's translation includes a gazetteer with live links into the AWMC map.
