Created with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities, among others, the Syriac Gazetteer is a collaboratively built "geographical reference work... for places relevant to Syriac studies." Originally published with 2,000 places, the Syriac Gazetteer is growing continually. To get started, the Gazetteer offers both an A-Z listing of place names and an interactive browse maps feature within the Index section. The About and Help pages also provide support and documentation. The Syriac Gazetteer is published under a Creative Commons license, and its data can be downloaded in several XML formats for those who wish to build additional applications with it. The Gazetteer links to Pleiades (a similar resource for places in the ancient world), Wikipedia, and Google Maps.
