Sandcastle

A malleable 3D mapping system for pre-modern maps and views

A subset of our database of premodern city views

Beginning in the summer of 2020, our team began collecting premodern "maps" that have been described using the following terms:

Chorographies
Views (Incl. Oblique, Bird's-eye, Perspective, Landscape)
Prospects
Profiles
Portraits
Panoramas

The collection below is a subset of images that were selected for their suitability for visual annotation and eventual translation into 3D environments using the Sandcastle Workflow
