Between 1630 and 1654 a large part of Brazil was occupied by the Dutch. During this peirod the area was charted by the cartographers Cornelis Goliath (who died in 1667/1668) and Georg Marcgraf. In 1643 they reproduced the results recorded here in the form of an attractive wall chart. Based on this chart, Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) published an atlas chart in 1662.
