Presidential Research Lecture by James Tice: “Mapping Rome”

Held Friday, February 6 at 5:00pm

Featuring James Tice, professor, University of Oregon Department of Architecture

A professor of architecture specializing in the cartography and urban history of Rome, James Tice shares his passion for one of the world’s great cities through the creation of interactive online maps.

Tice is currently working on his third venture in this vein, the GIS Forma Urbis Romae Project: Creating a Layered History of Rome. The previous websites that Tice co-created, the Interactive Nolli Map and Giuseppe Vasi’s Grand Tour of Rome, were conceived as a resource for students and scholars but have mushroomed into an international phenomenon.

“When I first started this work over ten years ago it was a labor of love that I thought twelve people might find interesting,” Tice says. “I had no idea that hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world would find it engaging.”
