Ancient Egypt Map

NACIS Atlas of Design

Ancient Egypt - Sites and Settlements of the Dynastic Period, has been selected for inclusion in the latest edition of the North American Cartographic Information Society's (NACIS) Atlas of Design. This edition is, according to the publisher, "dedicated to showing off some of the world's most beautiful and intriguing cartographic design."

I am delighted, therefore, that this map, along with a short commentary describing the design process, has been considered worthy of inclusion amongst a collection of 32 maps from contributors located around the world. Many of these maps have been produced by cartographers whose previous work and knowledge has provided me with a great deal of inspiration to further develop my own abilities.

This map details the key settlements of the Ancient Egyptian civilisation. Also shown are many of the important Ancient Egyptian sites and temples that remain today. The various capitals are highlighted on the map in addition to the locations of the natural resources and minerals exploited by the Ancient Egyptians.

The Atlas of Design can be purchased here.

Ancient Egypt - Sites and Settlements of the Dynastic Period is available in poster form and can be purchased in our shop.

Hello, my name is Ed Merritt. I am a cartographer based in Southampton (UK). I established Merritt Cartographic in 2006.

I am a graduate of Oxford Brookes University, receiving an honours degree in Mapping and Cartography. Having worked in the past for a large publishing company in central London, much of my current work is commissioned for inclusion in reference books. I also produce interactive maps for deployment on websites and in applications as well as products for use on public display panels and signposts. As a freelance cartographer, I have produced custom maps and graphics for a wide range of publishers, charities and media organisations. My work has been included in products published by Dorling Kindersley, Millennium House, National Geographic, Pearson Longman, Royal Horticultural Society, Taschen and Weldon Owen.

I enjoy being creative in my work and like to explore new approaches. As a map-maker, I have a natural tendency to pay attention to detail and also to work hard to ensure that I am being as accurate as I can in the work that I produce.

For more information on how Merritt Cartographic can best assist you with your project, please send me a message or make contact via the information displayed above and throughout the site. I look forward to hearing from you.
