http://www.worldhistorymaps.com/samples.html

has some very interesting maps. They are all vectorized, which means you can keep changing the resolution to whatever you like, and the data also contains river, modern boundaries, mountains, etc that you can turn on and off. This is one set that I'm actually consider buying, since they have maps for every year in history!!!


Here are some sample screenshots that I took. Can you name all the countries?

Plug in is at the same page as the maps. I couldn't get it to work on Firefox, only IE.

Well, it's after 711, Tariq's invasion of Iberia.

And with 1070 I really meant 1070s, post-Manzikert.

It's before 786, the Franks haven't conquered the Longobards yet.

I know another good site with a map software, though it only covers europe.

http://www.historicalatlas.net/

there's a free demo version for the years 1792 - 1820.

I should make again a thread about Deylamids, it is really interesing that Arabs conquered a large part of the known world (Southern Europe, Northern Africa, Central Asia, ...) but never could conquer the small region of Deylam in the south of Caspian sea!

I can pinpiont the dates

 

1st map: around 50 b.c., with Julius Caesar just conquering Gaul, while the Tarim basin under Han, although why it left out Fu Jian as not part of the Han is certainly wrong.

Second map is 753 A.D., but It confuse Talas as Arab's taking it, in fact in reality it belongs to the Qarluqs, not Arabs. But I'm quite amazed at its detail of describing the little kingdoms of Kabul, and Tukharistan in Afghanistan which was not part of the Islamic empire but incorrectly depicted as part of it in most maps.

3rd is most likely around 1080, when the Seljuk was at its height and Liao was still large and strong.

 

4th is around 1290, but again it failed to realize the fact that the mongol empire is not a single unity at this point.

 

the fifth is most likely in the 1550s when Charles V ruled both Spain and Holy Roman Empire, when Suleiman took most of the Ottoman empire including Egypt but not the rest of Northern Africa yet. While Altan Khan of Mongolia united much of Mongolia.

it didn't, the Crimea Khanate did.

 

well, if the dates are so much important I can post them here in case you did not follow the link in the first post:

1st map: 36 BC

2nd map: 736

3rd map: 1086

4th map: 1286

5th map: 1536

"1st map: 36 BC

2nd map: 736

3rd map: 1086

4th map: 1286

5th map: 1536"

 

well, I'm close enough. They are interchangeable, but then the 2nd map is wrong.

The Arabs were largely driven out of central Asia at this date except Samarkand and Bukhara by the Turgis and would not regain them until 737a.d.
