  • Old maps are an important historical source for exploring historical landscapes. They are often used as cartographic bases for studying structural changes and reconstruction of land use. This study is concerned with comparison of positional accuracy
  • of a set of 'old maps' as compared to present-day maps. Determination of positional deviations defines the degree of precision of the old map and its potential for its use in GIS applications. The total of ten unique historical maps in different scales
  • Mapping abilities of four-year-old children in York, England
  • Suggests that children as young as four years have mapping abilities which are not usually taught to them until years later. - (DWG)
  • Use of LIDAR-derived images for mapping old landslides under forest
  • This study tested the potential of LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) images for mapping old landslides under forest. Landslide inventory maps were created for a 125 km2 area by applying the expert knowledge of 7 geomorphologists to LIDAR-derived

  • The A. is critical of the suggestion that the Vinland Map and Resen's Map of 1605 might derive from a common cartographic source. A likely source appears to be Claudius Clavus, the Danish cartographer.

  • Saxton's Maps of England and Wales : The accuracy of Anglia and Britannia and their relationship to each other and to the County Maps
  • England and Wales ; History of cartography ; Modern period ; Old map ; Sixteenth Century ; United Kingdom
  • From measurements of the graticules on Saxton's two general maps of England and Wales (the atlas map Anglia and the wall map Brittania), it is argued that neither map was drawn according to any specific projection, but that both were effectively
  • produced as flat-earth maps with the graticules superimposed afterwards. Comparisons are made between digital versions of Saxton's maps and of a modern map, by means of the computer program MapAnalyst. The maps are of almost the same accuracy in terms
  • The difference between maps and landscapes : a problem of the history of maps in Japan in Languages, paradigms and schools in geography.
  • In japanese, the words ezu and zu mean both maps and drawings. It is difficult to distinguish old topographical maps from landscapes using the bird's eye view. Cartographical techniques developed in Japan in the Edo period. Japanese meisho-zue

  • 2100 éves helyszinrajzi térkép. (a 2100-year-old topographic map)
  • During excavations near the city of Changsha in 1973, two maps were found, painted on silk. The first in a scale of 1:170.000-1:190.000 shows the area around the common border point of today's Hunan, Kwangsi and Kwangtung provinces. The second shows
  • Mapping the realm : A new look at the Gough Map of Britain (c.1360)
  • Cartographic distortion ; Geographical information system ; Historical geography ; History of cartography ; Middle Ages ; Old map ; Regression analysis ; United Kingdom
  • The mid-fourteenth century map of Britain known as the ‘Gough’ map is the earliest extant depiction of the island in geographically recognizable form. The availability of a digital scan of the map coupled with the use of Geographical Information
  • System (GIS) software provides the opportunity for a new look at the Gough map and the questions it poses. Attention in this article is directed to the settlement geography it shows, and in particular to the map’s 654 cities, towns, villages, castles
  • and monasteries. Their geographical positions as given on the manuscript are compared with their modern equivalents to shed light on some of the basic questions—the map’s place of origin, the purpose or purposes for which it was made and the circumstances of its

  • So far we know two Upper Paleolitic maps of the Kiew territory in Ukraine. The third map discovered in Pavlov (South Moravia) in 1962 is the oldest with archeological dating 25 000-27 000 B.C. (Pavlovien). Drawing of this sketch of map
  • is interpreted as the meanders of Dyje river and a relief of the northern slopes of Pavlovské vrchy Mts. An average scale of the map is approximate 1:21 000. All three maps are engraved in the fragments of mammoth tusks. - (MS)
