This map was composed by the surveyor and mathematician Anders Bureus (1571-1661). Between 1611 and 1626 Bureus produced several large maps of Sweden. In 1626 he prepared a large wall map of the complete territory of Scandinavia in six sheets. In 1656 the Amsterdam engraver Abraham Goos (deceased c. 1643) composed this map using the wall map. Claes Jansz. Visscher (1587-1652) published the map.
