Benefits of vector mapping to valorize cultural heritage : a digital device in Lyon Historical Museum

Abstract : The use of Geographic Information System (GIS) to create a vector map of Lyon in the late 18th century opens up many perspectives in the valorization of historical and artistic documents. The goal of this work was to produce a high quality vector base map in GIS, in order to study iconographic representations of Lyon in the 18th century (paintings, engravings, drawings) very finely. Taking as a reference the vector town map of Lyon based on the cadastral map c. 1824-1832 (Gauthiez 2008), we used the regressive method to create a vector map of Lyon in 1792. This reconstructed map was used as a basis to study a view of Lyon drawn c. 1719-1720. Using two different methods, five points of view have been located on the vector map. Part of the results of this study has been added to a digital tool for valorization of cultural heritage developed by the author and currently available in Lyon Historical Museum.
