This morning I learn a BBC article about the rediscovery of the oldest 3D map in Europe. The map is a roughly 5 x 6.5 foot slab of carved rock. Studying that article prompted me to start out trying in my archives for collections of historic maps. Whereas doing that I got here throughout a video that I shared again in 2013. That video is an animated 3D tour of 17th Century London.
Pudding Lane Productions created a 3 and one half minute video tour to indicate viewers what London could have appeared like previous to the Nice Hearth. The tour is predicated upon historic drawings and maps that the Pudding Lane Productions group researched. The video is embedded under.
