Next month, the JP Tower Museum INTERMEDIATHEQUE (IMT) is opening the special exhibition “Geodaisia – Modern Cartography from Tadataka Ino to Remote Sensing.”
At the University Museum, the University of Tokyo, where we have established Globalbase, a synthetic database centered on modern maps, as a pillar of our museum activities, we have taken this opportunity to reconsider the historical development of cartography, from modern mapping techniques established by Tadataka Ino (1745-1818) all the way to contemporary remote-sensing technologies, which have made possible digital maps based on aerial and satellite photography.
