Thanks to blog reader Christian Baumann, a completely new version of my Cryptologic Travel Guide is now avaible. Almost 100 museums, libraries, graves and other sights with a relationship to cryptology are now displayed on an interactive world map.
Earlier this year I introduced the first version of my Cryptologic Travel Guide – a list of places worth seeing for people interested in cryptology.
Cryptologic Travel Guide 2.0
However, presenting all these sights on a non-interactive list proved little attractive. Blog reader Christian Baumann from Vienna, Austria, threrefore suggested a much better concept: placing all the entries of the travel guide as clickable items on a scalable world map. I am very thankful to Christian that he not only proposed this way of presenting cryptologic sights but also provided a website that implements it. All I needed to do was to transfer my list to the content management system of this site and add the respective geo coordinates. Now that this work is done, I hereby proudly present my Cryptographic Travel Guide 2.0.
Here’s the starting page of the Cryptologic Travel Guide (cryptologictravelguide.com):

It goes without saying that I want to express my thanks to Christian Baumann for providing this great framework.
Dr. Christian Baumann is a long-term reader of my blog and my books. After studying engineering and computer science at the Technical University of Vienna, he started a career as IT consultant and software developer. Among other things, he developed geographic and map applications, which later gave him the idea of creating a web site for my travel guide. Currently, he is into crypto currencies and blockchain technology. He has developed a number of successful converting and decoding tools.
A few highlighs
Here are a few places contained in the travel guide that are, in my view, especially interesting:
- Grave of the Friedmans in Washington, DC
- Shugborough inscription
- Bletchey Park (UK)
- Cheltenham Listening Stones
- Cyrillic Projector (Charlotte, NC)
- Deutsches Museum (Munich, Germany)
- HeinzNixdorf MuseumsForum (Paderborn, Germany).
Crypto sights wanted
So far, almost 100 crypto sights are displayed on the map. There are a few more I will include soon. If you know other places that are interesting for crypto enthusiasts please let me know.
