Blaeu based this map on the Mercator-Hondius of 1606. A number of geographical improvements, however were incorporated, although two large fictions lakes accompanied by explanatory legends in Latin, still appear on the map. The British and French royal coats of arms indicate the territorial interests of the two nations at the time.
A settlement by Irish planters in 1621 at Newport News in the north, near Chesapeake Bay is shown, and also Jamestown, further in stream.
The Carolina coast is improved with two large bays.

Where John Smith projected Virginia as being lush and green by his depictions of trees, the Nova Virginia Tabula gives the impression that Virginia is stark and mountainous. Hondius kept the West orientation, but altered the images on the map. Instead of the figures of Powhatan and the Susquehanna chief, the Nova Virginia Tabula illustrates two Indians of Brazilian descent looking at a llama, a goat, and a unicorn. These images were used to support the claim that Virginia was located in the Indies, and therefore economically appealing for cash crops like sugarcane and citrus fruits.
