Does anyone know of...
...A historic cartographer that I can source personal or second hand accounts of their expeditions aswell as plotted map data to go with it?
To, explain further, I am an illustrator working on a project for my end of degree year, and would like to create an illustrated account of a famous cartographers expedition.
I am not that well informed on cartography, so any information anyone can give me I would be grateful for
Hmmm, I'm not sure myself but I'd start with "Lewis & Clark" which certainly includes maps and if nothing else will probably give you links to other famous exploration teams.
Hope this helps.
Livingston and Stanley, perhaps?
