Hi Tod! Thanks for your support for the Warper project! I was thinking you might have some pointers for this: I am preparing an upload of 8000 Norwegian historical maps and I am tempted to solve the personalities of the cartographers. I have been able to normalize the number of names down to 1500. Usually it is just the last name, sometimes with a rank and/or initials. The year is known. I am just thinking which would be a good way of doing this, good sources, Wikidata lookups etc. Or if there is something resembling a recommendation for general use. The Norwegian Mapping Authority will also independently work on it. --Susannaanas (talk) 07:52, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
- Oh no! I just saw that you had left this message back in 2015! How embarrassing! Whatever did happen with the authorities work reconciling those cartographer identities? Cheers! —Todrobbins (talk) 03:36, 6 April 2017 (UTC)
