Carte de France

The Carte de France is one of the first triangulated surveys commissioned since the advent of accurate mapping. Triangulation is the key component for historical maps to be georeferenced without excessive distortion. This set was scanned and georeferenced by the W.E. Upjohn Center for the Study of Geographical Change at Western Michigan University.

A copy of the maps as a full set is owned and made digitally interactive over modern imagery by David Rumsey.






Here is a zoom of Paris with three levels of transparency.
