The Histomap: 4,000 Years of World History in One Graphic


World history as the name itself suggests is huge in its prospects. The history of different states, nations, and continents contribute to the overall history of the world. There are no limitations to the history and it can not be bound in any boundaries. There is no one person who knows the history of the world and has written it in a proper order.

Maps are means of the knowledge of the history of a place. But different places have their own maps. The question generally asked is that is there any way to combine all the maps to make it one. If that would be possible would not it be a great deal.

The epic visualisation of how the power of different civilisations has changed over time, from the ancient Egyptians to the domination of the Romans and later the British Empire. Our template isn’t quite big enough to make all of the writing legible, but you still should be able to see the size of Empires. The David Rumsey Map Collection shows it’s detailed version.

The map in a nutshell have the map of the entire world. Obviously it needs a lot of time and attention to study this but this is definitely worth the pain. Map makers have struggled for years to find a way in which all the maps can be merged into one. Finally the map is here which shows all the aspects of the globe into a single place. 4000 years of world history is put in only a single graphic. This is a big achievement in itself and people should be proud of the historians who did this gigantic work.
