Lisa Oppenheim, a photographer based out of New York, recently utilized the images from the ultimate coffee-table book, 100 Photographs that Changed the World, to build a star map based on their historic context.  She explained the process to I Heart Photography,

…source images were found in a time/life book, 100 photographs that changed the world. i am plugging the time, place and date of each photograph into a computer program that makes a map of the stars from any place at any time. i am printing out the star maps and drawing the stars by hand onto acetate and printing them, photographically.
