    Abstract:
    The ongoing research project “Digital Cartographies of the Roman Campagna” is developing an interactive digital map to explore the relationship between artistic representation of the Roman Campagna and the history of the place itself, in the context of ecology, climate change, disease and social history from 1600 to 1900. In the following essay we discuss the rationale behind the decision to create a digital map as the key research outcome, explain the methodology being developed for working with digitized versions of historic maps, with a particular focus on georectification, and reflect on some of the representational and conceptual issues that georectification brings up and outline our plans to address these challenges in our future research.
