Ancient babylon maps were the first digital maps, according to the ancient Greeks
Ancient maps from the Ancient Greek city of Babylon were the earliest digital maps available, according a new report.
The digital maps are thought to be the earliest maps ever produced, according the Digital Globe.
Ancient Babylon’s digital maps were designed by a team of scientists from the Athenian Library and were the result of a research project begun in the 1950s.
The team of researchers, led by archaeologist Ksenia Marjeva, used computer modeling to create a digital map of the ancient city.
The project was led by the library’s curator, George E. Shulgin, who was a student of Shulkin at the University of Georgia.
Marjevayeva said the ancient maps were inspired by the ancient cities of Athens and Mycenae.
“The idea was to use the ancient sites as a reference to get a better understanding of the geography and history of the region,” she told ABC News.
The map was created in digital form and the team used a digital color palette to represent each location on the map.
The images are still available to view on the digital Globe.
The ancient maps also featured different themes and color schemes for each city.
They are believed to have been produced during the reign of Cyrus the Great, who ruled Babylon between 490 and 607 BCE.
Cyrus, the Persian king who ruled the Persian Empire for more than two centuries, ruled the city of Baghdad and ruled over many other important cities, including Athens, Myceneae and Heraclea.
The Babylonian maps have long been considered the most accurate depictions of ancient Babylon.
According to ABC News, they depict an area roughly the size of Manhattan, with the city’s population of some 300,000 people.
Ancient maps were first created in the 17th century, when Greek cartographer Herodotus wrote about them.
