Description
Infinite Perspectives traces the artistic and scientific evolution of topographic representation from its origins to the present and features over 80 vivid colour plates of some of the most significant maps ever made. Twenty of these maps allow readers wearing the enclosed 3-D glasses to view planetary surfaces without distortion. This invention, called Infinite Perspective Projection, is currently in use by NASA and the U.S. Department of Defense. Included are maps of Mars and the Grand Canyon, as well as two large fold-out maps. This is the third book in a series that includes the highly acclaimed titles An Atlas of Rare City Maps and Birds Eye Views.
