Da Costa E Miranda. World map 1706 being digitised by a state-of-the-art high resolution scanner, technology developed from ground breaking research at Kyoto University’s Advanced Imaging Lab.
A selection of large detailed maps and panoramas from the State Library of NSW collection were chosen for scanning over two days.
The map was scanned in 15cm sections and will be stitched together to create an exceptionally accurate and detailed high resolution file.
Sarah Kenderdine from Laboratory for Innovation in Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (iGLAM) and expert Pengchang Zhang from LUXLAB Scanning Research Services were onsite at the State Library of NSW to perform the scanning in the Digitisation & Imaging department, and share their expertise.
