Portion of Egypt: East Part of the Delta of the Nile, incl. Cairo, Red Sea, Port Said, Suez (Raster Image)
- Stanford Geospatial Center
- This layer is a georeferenced raster image of an historic regional map of a portion of Egypt, showing the east part of the Nile River Delta, Cairo, the Red Sea, Port Said and the projected route of the Suez Canal, originally created in the 19th century (1855-1860?). All map collar and inset information is also available as part of the raster image, including any inset maps, profiles, statistical tables, directories, text, illustrations, or other information associated with the principal map. This map was georeferenced by the Stanford University Geospatial Center using a Transverse Mercator projection. This map is part of a selection of digitally scanned and georeferenced historic maps of Africa held at Stanford University Libraries.This historic paper map provides an historical perspective of the cultural and physical landscape during this time period. The wide range of information provided on these maps make them useful in the study of historic geography. As this map has been georeferenced, it also can be used as a background layer in conjunction with other GIS data.
