German term or phrase: Consultation: Naglergasse, Kramergasse, Rotgasse
The sentence, about the Roman camp of Vindobona, says:
Das Lager, dessen Grenzen sich im Grundriss der Innenstadt im Verlauf des Tiefen Grabens, der Naglergasse, des Grabens, der Kramergasse und der Rotgasse sowie zum Donaukanal hinunter entlang des Salzgries deutlich abzeichen, bildete den Ausgangspunkt der territorialen Entwicklung Wiens.

I am not familiar with this field of study. Are the street names modern, or do they have any special significance to the Roman period?

Explanation:
These are modern names. The geographical development of the city of Vienna was based on the layout of the Roman camp. The borders of the camp are coextensive with these modern streets:

Der Tiefe Graben, Naglergasse, der Graben, Kramergasse, and Rotgasse. Also along the Salzgries down to the Danube Canal.
It can be tricky when German towns have names like Graben!
Best wishes, Nancy

Thank you! The Graben part had me doubting, you're right (the rest could be deduced as modern streets, but I've forgotten my Stadtbümmels in Wien). What really frustrated me is that all this could be seen in the Hoher Markt Museum, whose website had no maps!

Yes


Explanation:
All the street names in question are still in existence, all are in the First District, and they do indeed mark out the boundaries of Roman Vienna. The Donaukanal is the Danube Canal. What the author is saying is that the original Roman camp has left its mark in the street map of Vienna down to this day.
