The Gough Map: gateway to medieval Britain
Bodleian Library - Map Room
 

The intention is to digitise the Gough Map, then have the capability to overlay the map data from this fourteenth-century map on to a twenty-first-century cartographic grid. This is the most important map in the University’s holdings, and the Oxford Digital Library Development Fund could be the vehicle capable of delivering this map to a wide academic audience.

A further objective is to bring the map “to life”. Much of its content has never been fully understood due to its relatively small size, so, using the National Library of Scotland’s Project Pont as a model, it has been successful in making buildings and urban layouts visible to the naked eye for the first time.
