I’m always on the search for new cartography tools. Recently, I was visiting the webpage of a fellow cartographer (Bernhard Jenny) who often develops helpful open source software for terrain mapping, and I happily came across a new product called MapAnalyst. This application could be of particular importance to both cartographers and those in the humanities, especially map historians.
The purpose of MapAnalyst (a Java based application for all major operating systems) is to determine the accuracy of old maps, computing distortion grids and other useful information.
