Runivers - Russian BordersInteractive cartographic Internet project "Borders of Russia 1462-2018".
Dynamic map of Russia for each year from 1462 to 2018 with area calculation of all acquired and lost territories. "RUVERS" together with the Laboratory of Historical Geoinformatics of the Institute of General History of the Russian Academy of Sciences and NextGIS company presents the project "Borders of Russia 1462-2018".
This cartographic project contains data on the geographical location of Russia's political borders and their changes over the last five and a half centuries. The most important function of the project is the possibility to choose any year in the interval 1462-2018.
The map shows seven different statuses of the territory of the Russian state: main territory of the state, territory under the protectorate, territory in vassal dependence or sphere of influence, leased territory, territory in joint ownership and disputed territory.
For each year, the area of Russian territory has been calculated. Its maximum increase took place in the second third of the XVII century as a result of its promotion to Siberia. Outstanding long-term process of Russians' penetration to the east in small groups can not be considered an ordinary movement of state borders and is difficult to map. In this connection, the record for Russian history growth figure (2.07 million square kilometers) is only provisionally dated on the map to 1634.
Fixation of rights to Alaska at the end of XIX century. The fixation of Alaska rights at the end of the XIX century "added" Russia another 1.5 million square kilometers. The largest losses occurred in 1917 and 1991. - The largest losses occurred in 1917 and 1991. 1.4 and 5.2 million square kilometers.
The ruler of Russia, who added the most land, is Mikhail Fedorovich Romanov. Under Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev, most of the territory was lost.
