In 2010, we wrote an entry about the exciting beginnings of the project Mapping Gothic France. Since then the site has been updated to include many more Gothic churches, images, and options for viewing. One of the new features includes the Pasteboard, which allows you to sort the churches as needed for visual analysis and comparisons. You can sort images of various church aspects from frontispieces to parametric sections in any order you need. Be sure to check out the new Simulation model as well, an interactive resource for learning about the structural dynamics of stone arches. Remember, the site is still a work in progress, so keep checking back for future additions and resources.
