Beauty in computer games

Sometimes you are doing something in a computer game and it gives you a scene that just takes your breath away. This was the amazing view I got as I flew a (stolen) helicopter back into Los Angeles Los Santos in Grand Theft Auto 5.

That was a chance moment, rendered in real time, on a 5 year old PC. And it made me stop and go “wow”.

Old maps

I am researching old maps of the world from the 1920s and 1930 for a project I am working on.

Two great resources I have found are:

http://www.hipkiss.org/data/maps.html – some maps here

http://www.oldmapsonline.org/ – map scans. But not as good quality, or as comprehensive (or well indexed) as this one

https://www.davidrumsey.com – excellent very high quality scans of maps through history that you can download.Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblr
