About Us

Dipylon Society is a non-profit organization (NPO) for the study of ancient topography through interdisciplinary research on Archaeology, History, Informatics and Cartography (www.dipylon.org). Founded in 2014, it focuses on collecting, organizing and disseminating archaeological knowledge, making the most of the cutting edge technology in digital humanities, specifically GIS and web-mapping.

We are developing innovative methodologies aimed at communicating with the academic community and reaching out to the general public. We wish to contribute to research and education on the topography of ancient cities and related cultural landscapes, and through our programs we seek ways of enhancing relations between citizens and monuments.
