All things digital!

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Cartographic items such as old maps and atlases can now be viewed digitally. For instance, David Rumsey Collection of maps is shown in minute detail and can be zoomed for closer inspection. Digital cameras and software programs such as MrSID make it possible to archive this information digitally. Also, JPEG2000 and j2k encoder as an optional image format to save images are used. Large antiquarian maps are best migrated digitally using an image format that saves as much detail as possible or scan at higher resolution and then create much smaller distribution forms specifically for the Web.
