While Mercator’s projection became standard in years to come due to its ability to accurately measure distance and bearing, Monte’s polar projection gave a better view of the relationships of the continents and oceans. Hand-drawn in 1587, it forms an Atlas of 60 sheets, of which only two manuscript copies exist in the world. In addition to publishing a voluminous treatise detailing our planet’s physical complexities, the nobleman also designed three planispheres that laid out the wonders of the world in rich, colorful illustrations. #, Tengo una duda... este mapa fue publicado en 1587 “según la historia”.. pero al estar viéndolo con detalle puedo notar varias cosas extrañas (qué no quiero decir que estén mal) solo me gustaría tener una explicación, en donde Urbano Monte marca a México aparece tal cual ese nombre “México, cuando el pais o la zona fue nombrada así hasta el año 1813 aprox. So what the Rumsey Collection has done, with the copy they recently acquired via Barry Ruderman, is to do it virtually, creating a digital edition of the map as a single image (see above).

Jeremy Ashkenas even created a rotatable & zoomable globe of Monte’s map that is incredibly fun to play with.
His first, completed in 1587, represents the largest known, early modern map of Earth, and includes scientific information such as regional climates and lengths of days. The David Rumsey Map Collection at Stanford University has recently digitized this Atlas, hand-drawn in 1587 by Urbano Monte, in Milan. 1st Ring of Planisphere, Composite of Tavola 1-12. In fact the map is drawn to be a ball. Urbano Monte’s map is one of the earliest, and certainly one of the most extraordinary, planispheres in history. The individual map panels looked like this: Of course, once the image is digital you can map it into all sorts of different projections like Mercator or Ortelius oval projection. For all comments, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s just beautiful A lot of thanks. King Sebastian did not die in Alcácer Quibir, as he wimself writes in the legend that identifies the King of Portugal in Urbano´s Map. How could you get that wrong? His projection does just that, notwithstanding the distortions around the south pole. #, It's a beautiful map, I've one question, In addition to publishing a voluminous treatise detailing our planet’s physical complexities, the nobleman also designed three planispheres that laid out the wonders of the world in rich, colorful illustrations. Libraries acquired and scanned the sheets, then digitally stitched them together. An extraordinary 60 sheet manuscript world map made in 1587 by Urbano Monte has been added to the David Rumsey Map Collection at Stanford University. Rather than venturing on explorations to gather firsthand knowledge of distant lands, he turned to libraries and relied on published texts — largely contemporary sources — to compile research. #, you can buy prints of the finished map at davidrumsey.com Is there more known about Urbano Monte and who he was? Until now, Monte’s manuscript map was seen as a series of 60 individual sheets. #, This much detail in 1587. #, Wonderful depiction of the World at this point in time.

Ninguém, então, trabalharia tanto, no levantamento dos dados, e poria 'enfeites pessoais' e 'ilustrativos' na OBRA!!! #, Very beautiful..
Beautiful! #, This is amazing! Dopo secoli di attesa, finalmente il desiderio di Urbano Monte si è realizzato: la preziosa mappa da lui disegnata, composta da 60 fogli, è stata finalmente esposta nel modo in cui voleva lui. Other pictures are more faithful to reality, such as portraits of Monte himself and of King Philip II of Spain — the latter of which reminds of the Spanish empire’s power during that time. #, @BeyondHuman: They didn't waste time to project this as this "flat map" as a ball. This map is among a great plethra of knowledge in that it has all the details working together of giants, mermaids, dragons & other fascinating creatures woven into it. Increíble y hermoso! #, I'm amazed by the ammount of information and how precisely they are (considering it's a 16th century map).

I wonder why ? 1st through 4th Rings of Planisphere, Composite of Tavola 1-60. Urbano Monte, born in 1544, was a wealthy scholar from Milan who dedicated much of his later life to studying the earth’s geographies. Monte's map reminds us of why historical maps are so important as primary resources: the north polar azimuthal projection of his planisphere uses the advanced scientific ideas of his time; the artistry in drawing and decorating the map embodies design at the highest level; and the view of the world then gives us a deep historical resource with the listing of places, the shape of spaces, and the commentary interwoven into the map. It also does lean towards more that of the "flat earth" vs. the "globe earth". Imagine this covering an entire wall! Researchers in the Stanford community can request to view these materials in the Special Collections Reading Room. #, When will the remaining pages in the book be digitized and made available to the public??? Inconfundivelmente Urbano Monte deu um passo fenomenal desenhando este mapa precioso! #, They wasted no time projecting a flat map of Earth-flat for good reason-onto a ball. #, We live on flat stationary plane Earth.
Just look at the self-portraits...and read the Sonnet. (Listed as #10220.000.). To observe the map in all its details, visit David Rumsey’s blog: “Largest Early World Map”. Amazing work. The David Rumsey Map Collection at Stanford University has recently digitized this Atlas, hand-drawn in 1587 by Urbano Monte, in Milan. In 1589, two years after the map was completed but perhaps still being revised, Monte updated his portrait at age 43 with a new circular image pasted on top of the earlier one, now showing his age to be 45. The collection may be viewed with the following applications: LUNA is a web-hosted software solution developed to display, manage and preserve all types of digital archive collections, image collections, special collections and library collections. In his dedication on Tavola XL he specifies how to arrange the sheets of the planisphere and makes it explicit that the whole map was to be stuck on a wooden panel 5 and a half brachia square (about ten feet) so that it could be revolved around a central pivot or pin through the north pole. The globe version of this map is utterly ridiculous and doesn’t match anything we’ve seen from alleged photos of earth from space. Leave it to censor-laden Google to make it seem as if it's round!

Would love to buy a print/poster if available. Because in that time, Urbano Monte had been hard at work creating what, for my money, is the most fascinating and wonderful map ever made. #, Detalle de Tavola XXIIII (Costa de Brasil, Retrato del Rey Felipe II de España), les quiero comentar que antes de ver este mapa, tuve un sueño de un objeto esferico al cual le llamaban pandora y en esta esfera estaba este mapa pero era una parte, vi tambien otra parte color rojo, no tenia arboles ni nada, y habia otras partes mas... pero para crusar de un lado a otro se nececitaba un tipo de tecnologia avanzada ... y pues de esta esfera era de colores llamativos la cual uno podia ampliar o alejar la imagen de la cual se queria ver... como si fuera un mapa.... (((de esta imagen hay veo algo parecido la cual sostienen no una sino dos esferas , una el rey felipe II en su trono, y la otra un personaje que le dice algo))) cabe mostrar que si se fijan en estas eferas dentro de ellas muestran un paisaje de montañas como si estubieran buscado algo. You know something about this? Rumsey emphasizes how Monte’s document merges science, art, and history, writing, “The north polar projection of his planisphere uses the advanced scientific ideas of his time; the artistry in drawing and decorating the map embodies design at the highest level; and the view of the world then gives us a deep historical resource with the listing of places, the shape of spaces, and the commentary interwoven into the map.”. I'm just fascinated by this. #, What a truly remarkable achievement! I did notice that in the southeastern US, there is a reference to the "Teneschi".
