Tracking the Production of Ceramics

Maps are an essential tool for tracking the production of ceramics. This production was concentrated in cities that had access to clay, water, and kilns. Using two different mapping applications, I located some of these production centers and provided illustrations. With greater amounts of data (especially with the google application), these maps could be further developed as research tools to track stylistic differences and similarities and to consider trade and gift-giving in the sixteenth century.
