Important monuments such as Notre Dame and the Louvre are identified by large engraved depictions, which contrast with the two-dimensional design of the map. While these pictures seem to be scaled to fit roughly in the area on the map the building they depict occupies, they still dominate the surrounding area. It is interesting to look at which buildings make the cut: functioning medieval relics such as Notre Dame and the Hôpital St. Louis, former royal palaces such as the Louvres and Tuileries, administrative buildings such as the town hall, senate and legislature, monuments to the revolution (place de la Bastille) and famous cemeteries at Montmartre and Pere Lachaise. On my layer I categorised these places accordingly. It is difficult to identify a particularly political project in this selection, though the equivalence of representation seems to tie these disparate sites together, both serving as a guide for tourists and as an expression of a unified national tradition.
