Dutch term or phrase: Stadsplan naar Braun en Hogenberg
Help please. I have three columns in a text about a city and its medieval past.

The first column ")shows a picture, the second the period, the third the "vervaardiger" (which I have provisionally translated as "by.

The vervaardiger column often says "naar" and then someone's name.

Naar Braun en Hogenberg is one example. Which I thought was "according to"


But now I see a title "Stadsplan naar Braun en Hogenberg", I am starting to be doubtful. Any thoughts on this please?

City map after Braun and Hogenberg
Explanation:
Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg produced maps some 400 years ago. So in my opinion 'naar' in this context would be after Braun and Hogenberg as in not being the original? Reproduction maybe? They are however the original 'vervaardiger'creator of the map.

agree  philgoddard: Yes, as your example shows, this term is widely used in art. It means "based on".

neutral  writeaway: imo naar/after works if it's a work based on their map, not their map itself

  -> True, but taken the fact that there's a picture in the first column, it might be valid to say 'after the original of'.

agree  Tina Vonhof: You could read this as 'according to', i.e. that map may not be the only one.

Reference information:
Georg Braun (also Brunus, Bruin; 1541 – 10 March 1622) was a topo-geographer.[1] From 1572 to 1617 he edited the Civitates orbis terrarum, which contains 546 prospects, bird's-eye views and maps of cities from all around the world.[2] He was the principal editor of the work, he acquired the tables, hired the artists, and wrote the texts. He died as an octogenarian in 1622, as the only survivor of the original team to witness the publication of volume VI in 1617.

Braun was born and died in Cologne. His principal profession was as a Catholic cleric, however, he spent thirty-seven years as canon and dean at the church, St. Maria ad Gradus, in Cologne. His six-volume work was inspired by Sebastian Münster's Cosmographia. In form and layout it resembles the 1570 Theatrum orbis terrarum by Abraham Ortelius, as Ortelius was interested in a complementary companion for the Theatrum.

The Braun publication set new standards in cartography for over 100 years. Frans Hogenberg (1535–1590, from Mechelen) created the tables for volumes I through IV, and Simon van den Neuwel created those for volumes V and VI. Other contributors were Joris Hoefnagel, Jacob Hoefnagel, cartographer Daniel Freese, and Heinrich Rantzau. Works by Jacob van Deventer, Sebastian Münster, and Johannes Stumpf were also used. Primarily European cities are depicted in the publication; however, Casablanca[3] and Mexico City/Cuzco on one sheet[4] are also included in volume I.
