Description

Charting Neptune's Realm: From Classical Mythology to Satellite Imagery.

April 4, 2000 to January 11, 2001

The charts in this exhibition explore how mariners have distinguished one piece of water from any other, by determining what phenomena can be delineated across the vast, trackless ocean and by developing notations to express those phenomena.
