Sail the seas

Until the 15th century, maps were mostly nautical charts used to sail the seas, helping captains not to lose their way when navigating the vast blue oceans of the world. Based on the classic works of Ptolemy, Battista Agnese of Genoa was the first cartographer to draw a map entitled “Atlas”—the most accurate depiction of planet Earth’s geography to date. The rest, as they say, is history.

Cartography has advanced by miles since the era of New World discoveries. Today, we hang world map posters on the wall as decoration, steering only the ship of our fantasies towards endless horizons and unknown territories.

20,000 leagues above the sea

As seafaring globetrotters from Christopher Columbus to James Cook stumbled upon undiscovered lands, travelling the globe, astronomers from Galileo to Copernicus were making their own sensational progress that would change our view of the world forever.

Centuries later, with the birth of space travel, astronomy was catapulted into new, unknown dimensions—from the first images of the moon to space probes ploughing through the depths of outer space. And while prints of world maps may seem like a relic from yesteryear in an age of GPS, space mapping is still in its infancy.

From cosmonaut to urbanite

Crashing down to space like a gift from the heavens, an asteroid burns up through the Earth’s atmospheric blanket, scattering a light shower of cosmic dust over the cities that lay below.

From space but clusters of light, these urban sprawls and concrete jungles each take on their own, unique metropolitan topography when viewed through the macro lens of an urbanite. Their blocks, bridges, rivers and roads form a network as special and singular as the world they are a part of. Plotted as a map, they form beautiful constellations that remind us of home.
