Historical Context: This is an example of a Dutch sea chart of the type actually used for navigation in American waters in the late seventeenth century. It is oriented with west at the top and it covers the region from Labrador to the mouth of the Amazon River, an area included in the "West Indies" as the term was originally used [to distinguish the New World from the East Indies]. The radiating lines represent compass courses and are called "rhumb lines" or "loxodromes." The profuse coastal detail and lack of interior information are typical of sea charts.
