This paper deals with the application of computers in historical-topographical research. In particular we will present the project “Historische Landeskunde des antiken Griechenland” (HiLanG). This project, financally supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) is undertaken by the Departments of Ancient History at the Universities of Freiburg and Münster. We will develop our paper in two steps. First we will explain the scientific aim of the project, then we will give an example of our researches.
