Cartographic and Digital Misfits: Early Modern Chorography and Modern Cartesian Software
February 21 @ 2:00 pm
This talk will describe some of the conclusions drawn through the creation of a research and development project that seeks to bring “chorographies” (also known as “city views”) into digital mapping environments that acknowledge the pseudo-perspectival nature of these early modern sources. Following a brief description of chorography, which was a ubiquitous form of spatial visualization in the 16th-18th centuries, Dr. Triplett will outline how he and his partners developed the “Sandcastle Workflow” – a multiple-software technique that combines image annotation and procedural modeling to translate chorographies into explorable 3D scenes.
