Map of the royal tombs at Kotagede

One of the most striking maps that is georeferenced recently, is this manuscript plan of the royal tombs at Kotagede. In this historic neighbourhood in Yogyakarta the remains of the first capital of the Mataram sultanate, including its royal cemetery, are still visible. The large plan, measuring 81 x 93 cm., is in Javanese script and drawn around 1890. In the legend 295 graves are listed and in the map itself four types of graves are distinguished by colour: purple, green, red and yellow.
