Summary: We establish effective uniform degree bounds for the generalized Gauss map images of an embedded projective variety \(X\subset\mathbb{P}^N\) in terms of numerical invariants such as \(\dim \)X, \(\deg X\) and \(N\). This can be seen as a generalization of a classical Castelnuovo type bound.
