I'm hoping that the BP community can help me make a better representation of the AD 79 topography of Pompeii. The map above shows both the progress made so far and the areas that are not represented in enough detail, or covered at all. The contours are based on published sources of elevation data (blue dots). In this image, the data is from the map in H. Eschebach 1995, but clearly more points are needed, especially within the insulae (rather than in the streets), near to the city walls, and outside those walls.
What are your recommendations for more published elevation data sources? Do any of you have unpublished data that you'd be willing to share (you'd be appropriately credited and thanked, of course)?
Thanks for your help!
