David Rumsay's Visual Collections

Visual Collections: images of art, history and culture

This site is a real goldmine... With a java viewer inside or outside the browser, an immense collection of hi-res scans are available for your viewing and downloading pleasure. For an extreme quality archive, you may need a .sid -to-.tif converter, for some batches.

.....................

"About the Visual Collections Site
The Visual Collections site from Cartography Associates contains dozens of digital image collections from Museums, Universities and private collections throughout the world. Our mission is to encourage the development of future collections and facilitate their worldwide distribution to both scholars and the general public.

Cartography Associates strives to provide an on-line environment wherein all types of digital collections from a wide range of resources can be seamlessly fused together into one large, comprehensive collection. We have achieved this by allowing users to simultaneously view multiple collections from any category using the Insight® Java Client. While each collection is rich with its own imagery, character, and information, viewing several collections simultaneously creates a powerful set of images for all to study, admire, and enjoy.

Users can search through multiple collections ranging from antiquity to the present for a particular artist, time period, or medium. View ancient Chinese scrolls, architectural slides, modern art installations or historical maps of the Americas all from your desktop using Luna Imaging’s Insight® software.

Searching for a particular collection is easy as they have been organized into 5 topics: Cartography; Fine Arts; Architecture; Photography; and Other; and are also presented as a complete list in the View All tab."
