Dresden from the Frauenkirche Dome
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.
