Représentation de l'espace gaulois d'après Grégoire de Tours

Abstract : The systematic mapping of place names in Gaul from the collected works of Gregory of Tours (late 6th century) stimulated some thoughts on the modern representation of space for this period. Different cartographic tools were employed to transform the distribution of location points into a spatial image. Lastly, the proposed virtual map provides the possibility to travel around this created space and explore it. While this virtual map generated new perspectives regarding the database of Gregory, it also showed the limited use one can make of this information regarding space.
