Description:

This layer is a georeferenced raster image of the historic paper map entitled: Africae in tabula geographica delineatio : admentem novissimorum corumq. optimorum geographorum emendata, indicibus utilissimis aucta et adusum tyronum imprimis geographicorum, variis compendiosae methodi adminiculis accomodata opera A. F. Zürneri Reg: maj: Pol: et el: Sax: provinciarum finiumq. commissarii et geographi ut et Reg: Soc: Sci: B. M. It was published by ex officina Petri Schenkii in platea vulgo de Warmoes straat sub signo N. Visschers atlas, between 1730 and 1740. Scale [ca. 1:19,250,000]. Covers Africa and parts of Europe and the Middle East. Map in Latin.The image inside the map neatline is georeferenced to the surface of the earth and fit to the Africa Sinusoidal projected coordinate system. All map collar and inset information is also available as part of the raster image, including any inset maps, profiles, statistical tables, directories, text, illustrations, index maps, legends, or other information associated with the principal map.

Relief shown pictorially.This layer is part of a selection of digitally scanned and georeferenced historic maps from the Harvard Map Collection. These maps typically portray both natural and manmade features. The selection represents a range of originators, ground condition dates, scales, and map purposes.

Historic paper maps can provide an excellent view of the changes that have occurred in the cultural and physical landscape. The wide range of information provided on these maps make them useful in the study of historic geography, and urban and rural land use change. As this map has been georeferenced, it can be used in a GIS as a source or background layer in conjunction with other GIS data.
