Artl@s is an ArcGIS Server web application for art history research. It gives art historians powerful yet easy tools of spatialization thereby fostering innovative research and making GIS accessible to humanity scholars with little technical knowledge. It provides users with a crowd-sourcing geodatabase and a web mapping interface, which allows to query art history questions based on any or combined criteria of artists, arts, location, time, etc., or compare different search criteria in one map.
