Map Tapestry of the Mediterranean: Seville, Spain 2011

Topography - Overview:

The earliest maps were made in the Middle East in prehistory. The science around map making evolved along with our understanding of the shape of the Earth and the Solar System.

The landscape is also recorded in many other forms: artwork (drawings, carvings, paintings, sculpture, sketches etc), aerial perspectives and literature.

This section attempts to highlight some of those forms.

Note this page is still in preparation and is therefore only partially complete.
