This sample of maps were created using the ArcMap Software, employing opendata information available at the Esri database. The prefered projection used was the WGS 1984. The methodology for the development of the maps was based on the use of historical primary sources such as ship logs, travel accounts, old projections and biographical information. The maps are co-authored by cartography and Geomatics specialist Mariana Tiné, MSc.

Equiano traveled extensively, having come from the interior of the Bight of Biafra, in the heart of Igboland, and taken to the coast, probably leaving via the slave port of Bonny in 1754. By his own account, he was taken to Barbados and then to Virginia, where he was bought by British naval officer, Captain Michael Henry Pascal (d. 1786) from a tobacco planter by the name of Campbell and taken to England. His subsequent travels are identified in the Equiano’s website portal. The maps in the Equiano’s World Project have clean presentation and are intended to be resources to be used by school teachers and the general public.
