Dresden from the Frauenkirche Dome
Out of this World

A view from the dome of the Frauenkirche in Dresden Germany. The original 1829 artwork  by Carl August Richter can be seen on the Getty Research Center's website.

The community of panoramic photographers was speculating on how accurate the artwork was in today's terms, so I've reprojected it to find out. The answer is, it's quite accurate with the exception of the horizon line which appears to have vertical heights exagerated. Thanks to friends at the Facebook group "Panoramic Photographers on Facebook" for suggestions and help.
Here are two links to actual photographs taken at the same location by Holger Shulze and Willy Kaemena

There's a tendency to think that our generation has invented "Little Planet" projections, but this artwork proves the contrary.

More About Out of this World

The planet Earth has proven to be too limiting for our awesome community of panorama photographers. We're getting an increasing number of submissions that depict locations either not on Earth (like Mars, the Moon, and Outer Space in general) or do not realistically represent a geographic location on Earth (either because they have too many special effects or are computer generated) and hence don't strictly qualify for our Panoramic World project.But many of these panoramas are extremely beautiful or popular of both.So, in order to accommodate our esteemed photographers and the huge audience that they attract to 360Cities with their panoramas, we've created a new section (we call it an "area") called "Out of this World" for panoramas like these.Don't let the fact that these panoramas are being placed at the Earth's South Pole fool you - we had to put them somewhere in order not to interfere with our Panoramic World.Welcome aboard on a journey "Out of this World".
