The Development Of Mapping: Portuguese Cartography And Coastal Africa, 1434-1504

The creation of an interactive GIS (Geographical Information System) database of early maps of the African coastline, 1434-1504.

Digital technology applied to a historically significant collection of maps will not only allow collective display, but will create a research resource enabling entirely new modes of scholarly investigation. New knowledge can be gained through use of GIS software. The project is significant to many humanistic fields and will be openly available to scholars and teachers.
