This map of Goole was surveyed between 1888 and 1890, and it was published in 1892. The map is part of Yorkshire CCXXVII.16 (Airmyn; Goole; Hook; Kilpin).
Photozincographed and Published by the Director General at the Ordnance Survey Office, Southampton, 1892. The Altitudes are given in Feet above the assumed Mean Level of the Sea at Liverpool which is 0.650 of a Foot below the general Mean Level of the Sea. Altitudes indicated this (B.M. 54.7) refer to Bench Marks on Buildings, Walls, &c., those marked thus (+52) to surface levels.
The map was meticulously 'hand-stitched' from 53 individual images aligning each one perfectly in order to create a single, seamless image. The original images are scans of a physical document so the paper wear had to be digitally dressed out and the missing information (gaps in the map) recreated from existing detail. Finally the finished map was digitally enhanced to give the best possible clarity and the background replaced with an ultra high-resolution paper texture with a subtle vignette to give the map the appearance of a slightly aged, single physical document.
The map is designed to be printed at size A1 (594mm x 841mm / 23.4" x 33.1") and the project took around 15 hours to complete.
