A truly unique map sourced from the British Library is overlaid a modern relief map of Iceland.
Overlaid map of Iceland dates back to 1881 and contains “Askja, Iceland’s largest volcano: with a description of the great lava desert in the interior: and a chapter on the genesis of the island”
PLEASE NOTE: Since this map is a composite of two, they cannot be perfectly aligned and there are discrepancies because of differences in map projections in use and also because a 140-year-old map is likely to have inaccuracies. Please zoom in to review the relief in detail prior to purchase.
The relief landscape is based on Copernicus a constellation of satellites that make a huge number of daily observations – taking advantage of a global network of thousands of land, air, and marine-based sensors to create the most detailed pictures of Earth.
Added to this data is realistic shading and lighting which ultimately creates the image.
