The Aegean Minoan 3D GIS Project was initiated in 2007 to produce a three-dimensional (3D) full-color mapping of the archaeological sites of the Minoans in the Aegean Sea area using Google Earth. It is intended to be a definitive geographical reference available to everyone. While this is an ongoing project and we are always looking to improve it, thanks to the many contributing scholars and volunteers it is by far the most comprehensive and accurate mapping of its kind ever made and includes the sites and geographical features listed below.

All sites are referenced to the scientific literature and have links to additional descriptive and visual information wherever possible with some exceptions. I want to express my great thanks for the kind generosity of all the contributors who are to be congratulated for making this possible. As always I would appreciate any additions, corrections, comments, or suggestions that anyone may have.
