Welcome to an Atlas of Napoleonic Cartography in Italy

This web atlas is a pilot project designed to show the number and variety of manuscript maps surviving from the Napoleonic War period and the value of internet technology for their analysis, dissemination, and use.


Created by Anne Marie Claire Godlewska, Paul Schauerte, Paul Godlewski, Al-Nasir Hamir, Madame Marie-Anne Corvisier de Villele, and Madame Claude Ponnou as a project of cooperation between Queen's University and the Service historique de l'armée de terre.
