From Claudius Ptolemy to Gerard Mercator

This exhibition included about 70 maps of the "Ptolemaic Renaissance" of various cartographers such as Munster, Ortelius and Mercator, which with a new projection method applied to its maps, opens a new period for the history of cartography. The 16th century is important for the history of Cartography as Europe has a true geographical boom due largely to the discovery and dissemination of Ptolemy's Geography in the western world.
