Coverage and Frequency
CD explores how the image of the world has changed, from Ptolemy's geographical theories to today's satellite views, through ten well known maps viewed in detail. CD-ROM developed as part of the Earth and the Heavens: the art of the map maker, an exhibition held in the British Library galleries in 1995.
