Putting Scotland on the map - The Scots who mapped the world

A sneak peak at Bartholomew's map exhibition at Edinburgh. 


I finally had a chance to have a look at the tools which were used to produce maps (some of them DID ring a bell). I've heard about some during my Cartography classes at the uni, but never realized how finicky job is to work with them.





And here is the neighbourhood where I live now. It is south side of Glasgow (still not sure if its Govan or Plantation).
