Unsolved Mystery Of Piri Reis Map You Should Know

The controversy of Piri Reis map is still unsolved until now. In 1929, a group of historians discovered a magnificent map depicted in a reindeer skin. The research showed that it was an original document created in 1513 by Piri Reis, a well-known admiral of the Turkish fleet in the sixteenth century. Turkey recognized the admiral in a series of notes. He compiled and copied data from a large number of map sources, some of which date back to BC or earlier than the fourth century. 

Map of Piri Reis shows the west coast of Africa, the east coast of South America, and the north coast of Antarctica. The north coast of Antarctica has perfect details. The most confusing of the map is how Piri Reis managed to draw such an accurate map of the Antarctic region 300 years before it was discovered, but the map showed a shoreline under the ice. The geological evidence confirmed that the date of the latest Queen Maud Land could be mapped in ice-free 4000 BC.

The official science has explained that ice clumps cover Antarctica millions of years. The Piri Reis map showed that the northern part of the continent that had been mapped before the ice covered it. That means the area has been mapped million years ago, but that was impossible because humans did not exist at that time. Further and more accurate studies have proved that the last period of ice-free conditions in Antarctica ended about 6000 years ago. Therefore, no known civilization can do such a job.

In 1953, a Turkish naval officer sent a map of Piri Reis to the US Navy Hydrographic Bureau. To evaluate the map, M.I. Walters, Chief Engineer Bureau requested the help of Arlington H. Mallery, the authority on the ancient map. After a long study, Mallery discovered the projection method used. The map was completely accurate. He stated that the only way to draw the accuracy maps was by air surveying, but in the last 6000 years did anyone ever use an airplane to map the earth?

The Hydrographic Office does not believe what they see they cannot even fix some of the errors on this map. The precision in determining longitudinal coordinates shows that to draw the map it is necessary to use spheroidal trigonometry, a process that should have been unknown until the mid-18th century. Hapgood has proved that the Piri Reis map is plotted in the plane's geometry which contains latitude and longitude in the right corner in the traditional box. However, it obviously copied from an earlier map projected by using spherical trigonometry.

Hapgood has sent a collection of ancient maps to Richard Strachan, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Hapgood wants to know exactly the mathematical level needed to draw the map's original map. Strachan replied in 1965 that the level must be very high. Even Strachan said that to draw the map, the writer should know about the round trigonometry, the curvature of the earth, the projection method which is a very high level of knowledge. No one can explain about the Piri Map because the knowledge and technology have not been found yet at that time.
