GeaCron is a geographic information application implemented from a vector database. The information it provides can be used both in the field of historical research and in all educational fields. GeaCron’s mission is to make historical information universally accessible to all, through intuitive and attractive geo-temporal maps and configurable timelines. It provides a system for representing historical events and geopolitical maps of any region of the world and for any historical period. Raster images or vector files such as KML or shapefiles can be generated. This design allows GeaCron to be interactive, accurate, configurable, flexible, scalable and facilitates the augmentation of historical information. The maps show the historical situation of the world at the beginning of each year. GeaCron is also intended to be an enabler for websites that have historical content, such as online encyclopaedias, digital journalism or other geography and history websites.
