Heinrich Caesar Berann (1915 - 1999) the father of the modern panorama map, was born into a family of painters and sculptors in Innsbruck, Austria. He taught himself by trial and error. Winning first prize at a competition for a panorama map created great enthusiasm in him.
Using his artistic heritage and new self-discovered techniques he invented a new way of painting landscapes for tourist purposes. Berann's meticulous attention to land-surface detail is marvelous.
