Building an Interactive Map of the Roman Empire

It’s always interesting to see how the maps change throughout history, they are one of the most powerful visual ways to see historic information. Below is an example of a map for the Roman Empire, which lasted a few centuries and included large territorial holdings around the Mediterranean Sea in Europe, North Africa and West Asia.



The plugin itself doesn’t include a map of Roman Empire regions, but since we can use custom geoJson files, after some online search I came across a map for it which I then adapted to use with the plugin, also using the overlay option to display it in the normal world map focused on the Mediterranean sea.
