The history of pictorial maps overlaps much with the history of cartography in general and ancient artifacts suggest that pictorial mapping has been around since recorded history began.
In Medieval cartography, pictorial icons as well as religious and historical ideas usually overshadowed accurate geographic proportions. A classic example of this is the T and O map which represented the three known continents in the form of a cross with Jerusalem at its center. The more precise art of illustrating detailed bird’s-eye-view urban landscapes flourished during the European Renaissance.
Tutorials in the History of Cartography
The History of Cartography as a subject of study has over the last forty years emerged from a little noticed discipline to become one of wide ranging and increasing importance. As a subject it is not limited to the physical geographical or cartographical content of maps, but touches many areas of study such as History, Art and Art History, Mathematics, Ethnic studies, and International law. The History of Cartography encompasses not only the study of maps, but the study of texts written to accompany maps, those supported by maps and the processes by which maps were produced and marketed.

University of Florida – Maps of the Holy Land
In the entries that follow this introduction, the maps are organized by five conventional ages of cartography. Within these periods the entries are organized by countries in order of their prominence in mapmaking during the height of the Age. The entries are then organized by date and cartographer. Each cartographer is entered under his oldest dated map. If he has multiple entries, they will directly follow his first map regardless of date. Within this grouping the entire body of work for a cartographer can be seen at a glance. If two dates are given in an entry, the first represents the date of the map content. The second date is a different publication or printing date. When the first date in the entry is in parenthesis it means the map held by the UF Library is the same map but issued in a different printing.
Illustrated Perspective Map of Budapest, Hungary
The Illustrated Perspective Map of Budapest presents a metropolis in an unusual way: this unique, freehand work was drawn with a single technical pen. In the sea of visual information of the 21st century one can hardly find such elaborate, frail and sophisticated craftsmanship.
Pictorial maps are a category of maps that are also loosely called illustrated maps, panoramic maps, perspective maps, bird’s-eye view maps and Geopictorial maps amongst others. Pictorial maps usually show an area as if viewed from above at an oblique angle. They are not generally drawn to scale in order to show street patterns, individual buildings, and major landscape features in perspective. While regular maps focus on the accurate rendition of distances, pictorial maps enhance landmarks and often incorporate a complex interplay of different scales into one image in order to give the viewer a more familiar sense of recognition.
