Object 2: Fritz H. Fischer: Relief Map of Vienna
The geographical relief, a 3D model of parts of the earth‘s surface, originally formed by hand, underwent technological development in the second half of the 19th century. Analogous to the introduction of height layers into cartography, a method was developed to cut these height layers out of cardboard and glue them on top of each other. On the visible surfaces, segments of a map reproduced in lithography were laminated and colored by hand. Thus a three dimensional carto graphic form of expression was created on a mathematical basis. The relief of the height strata of the author H. Fischer is of special interest because it shows the city and its surroundings at the time of a striking transformation the regulation of the Danube.
