Another helpful website!
Hope you find this helpful!
Vassar's Andrew Tallon and Columbia's Stephen Murray have recently unveiled their massive and remarkable digital project to document the architectural monuments of 12-13-century France, entitled "Mapping Gothic France". This is an open-source, open access project available on the web at: http://www.mappinggothicfrance.org
The site consists of hundreds of dynamic, panoramic images, mapped to each monument, and accompanied by contextual materials including historical texts, time-lines, interactive maps, and biographies of scholars. It also contains tools for comparative study.
From the site:
"Whereas pictures can be satisfactorily represented in two dimensions on a computer screen, space -- especially Gothic space -- demands a different approach, one which embraces not only the architectonic volume but also time and narrative. Mapping Gothic France builds upon a theoretical framework derived from the work of Henri Lefèbvre (The Production of Space) that seeks to establish linkages between the architectural space of individual buildings, geo-political space, and the social space resulting from the interaction (collaboration and conflict) between multiple agents -- builders and users.
"Mapping Gothic France will, we hope, become a vital educational and research tool for both students and scholars. We invite you to explore the site, and welcome both your comments and scholarly contributions to the narratives."
To mark the unveiling of the Beta version of the website, Andrew Tallon and his students have mounted an exhibition in the Frances Lehman Loeb Center and the Vassar College Art Library that will remain on view through May 20, 2012:
