Fun with Maps part 1

One of the ongoing projects that Lazarus is working on – ok that specifically I am working on – is the recovery of the Vercelli Mappa Mundi. Only 4 maps survive from the thirteenth century monumental mapping tradition. As a badly damaged surviving member of this group, it is vital that we recover this map and bring it into the larger academic discussion around spatial humanities. The Vercelli map bears a valuable witness to the world view encapsulated in these maps.

Yesterday through the application of Principal Component Analysis to the different bands of light used in multi-spectral imaging, I was  able to recover previously unseen parts of Europe on the map.
