ABSTRACT The 1859 field diaries of Ferdinand von Hochstetter (1829–1884) include raw data from a compass survey of Lake Rotomahana. The azimuth array is reverse engineered to identify Hochstetter’s survey baseline. Survey iterations are performed to reconstruct the historic Lake Rotomahana over today’s topographic map. Hochstetter’s papers include a method-of-squares survey map of Lake Rotomahana, providing scale and orientation to the reverse engineered projection. The forensic cartography… Expand
