* Author learning modules,
as proof of concept,
that allow users to walk through history
both by location and through time






Assumptions







* Everything
can be fixed in place and time


* Semantic Processes
can be applied to automate this work

Maps are geo-rectified to match them to known points
as described by longitude and latitude,
so that historic city information can be compared
over time and with current urban plans.
