The link to this fantastic site was found by SeniorBatavianHorse, one of the best mind in the Galaxy!, and posted by him in IBFD Forums (http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=538651)! Then another great mind of the Galaxy, Ybbon, reminded it to me!, and then, I decided to offer this source to your attention here in RSII Forum!
What is Orbis? Orbis is a program, by Stamford Geospatial Network, that, using very detailed maps and scientific calculations, offers a model of the times of the travels in the Roman Empire! You start from the city you that want, then you write the name of the city you want to reach, and the program give you the way and the times needed and, most important, the cost of the travel!
You have to choose what kind of travel you want to do, the means of locomotion (oxen, cart, orse...), and if you want travel on sea and use rivers!
It could be very useful for AARs and to have an idea of the times and distances in the Roman world, and probably it could be useful also for modders when the problem is to set the movement distances per turn in relation to the times (times = turns = distances ...I like 4turns per year! ).So if someone finds interesting and/or useful Orbis please give +rep to 1)SeniorBatavianHorse 2)Ybbon 3) and Diocle o.c.!

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: Orbis works only with the last version of Internet Explorer (8?) which works only with Vista or Windows 7! So if you have, like me, Win XP install Mozilla Firefox or something similar, and you'll be able to travel in the Ancient Roman Empire!
