Project: A detailed study of Ferraris’s map in the framework of new techniques

01/01/10 – 31/12/13

Abstract
Ferraris’ Carte de Cabinet (1770-1778) is the oldest, large-scale topographical map of our region. In an initial stage, the semiology, semantics, geometrical deformations and geodetic framework of the map are investigated and lineage studies from and towards other maps are performed. The results of this research will then be used to integrate the map in a purposely designed historical G.I.S.
