"The most natural way to portray the shape of a surface is an oblique perspective, or bird’s eye view. Despite its name, the bird’s eye view is drawn from an artificial, even impossible vantage point. From no one place on earth, or off of it, could one see the land stretching away—to the horizon. … Unlike a standard, orthographically-oriented map, which is equally artificial but makes no pretense to be anything else, an oblique view such as this emphasizes the shape of the land surface over portraying what is on that surface. In the early days of the American Civil War, Bachmann chose a unique vantage point … to create his panoramic view of the likely theaters of war. … Produced in three-color lithography, Bachmann’s views were issued as separate maps" (Rumsey, Cartographica Extraordinaire).
