Applications available on Atlas Fontium with information about publication.

Search settlements

The search engine allows you to search the resources on the Atlas Fontium website in terms of the settlements it contains. The resource is searched only on the basis of a string. This means that if the same settlement is mentioned under completely different names in different publications, both occurrences will not be returned with the same query.
The table consists of the following columns: Main name, Additional names, Administrative affiliation, Publication, Map. The first one contains the name under which a given place functions in a given publication. Additional names are all other names of the place in a given publication (including modern or foreign names), separated by commas. In the column Administrative affiliation, affiliation to state administrative units or historical regions, according to the one recorded in the publication, is given. If the publication omitted this information, AHP affiliation was provided. The abbreviations used in this column are listed below. The last two columns contain a link to the publication page in which the settlement was mentioned and a link to the map application. Due to the fact that some publications did not have the letter functionality, it was not always possible to provide a link. Also due to the heterogeneity of the source material, it was not always possible to indicate territorial affiliation. The name in square brackets indicates a settlement without certain identification.

About the project

“Atlas Fontium” is a website dedicated to the publications of historical sources, research results and sharing materials from the period of the old Poland and the old Republic of Poland that have a spatial dimension. The main purpose of the project is to create a uniform system for gathering, analysing, and making available of information and sources for research in the field of historical geography of Polish lands within borders prior to 1772. The results of historical and geographical research conducted in various scientific centres, in Poland and abroad, will be presented on an IT platform. The project is based on the framework of settlement network and territorial divisions, both church and secular, in the period before the Partitions. As such, its main aim is to present materials related with this period.

Technological development connected with the introduction of historical spatial databases and GIS tools to research offers interesting possibilities not only when we speak about the presentation of research results, but also for the entire field of editing of historical sources, written, cartographic, and iconographic. Geographic space is an excellent reference plane for the humanities, allowing scholars to integrate large stocks of information, as well as determining future collaborated syntheses of historical and social phenomena. The materials, as well as source information related to particular topics, are linked with a digital map, thus allowing for a statistical and spatial analysis, and a direct visualisation of results on thematic maps.

Other centres, teams, and individual researchers are cordially invited to join our project.
