My initial motive behind writing this application was to assist history teachers in teaching WWI, as the Turkish national curriculum books' content ordering makes it hard for students to understand the chronological sequence of events.
Although the current maps are limited to the country borderlines from the beginning of 20th century, it can later be scaled up to include bigger maps from different eras. The map consists of only the European boundaries because of performance limitations.
