Haque, Shaila Sabrina (2008-10). A shader based adaptation of selected sixteenth century maps. Master's Thesis. Thesis uri icon


  • This research develops a technique focused on shading and texturing, with an emphasis on line work and color, to emulate the unique qualities of copperplate line-engraving from 16th century cartography. A visual analysis of selected maps determines the defining characteristics adapted for three-dimensional computer generated environments. The resulting work is presented in a short time-based animation.
