    Graphic tables
    From: Andrew Nikitin
    Date: 2016 Aug 15, 05:50 -0700

    I found 2 papers about graphic logarithmic tables. Just like the author I find them to be fascinating devices and largely underappreciated.

    Are there known examples of use of this form to represent almanac or other navigational tables?

    The other articles from that site are also quite interesting, here is the list.
