Abstract

Metric recovery and digital processing of historical cartography not only allow preserving mapping heritage but also give new possibilities for the use of this information, unachievable using the analogical support. The often poor metric quality of an ancient map is balanced by the value and the richness of its contents and also by the potentialities that the same map can offer in a digital form. In this work some tests of digital elaboration, performed on a perspective map of Bologna (Italy), dating 1702, are reported: georeferencing, analysis of map deformation induced by the adopted transformation technique, three-dimensional modelling and texturization of historical buildings with present images, fusion of data coming from different sources and insertion in Earth-viewer environment.
