D'Anville is very important for Korean cartography as he made the cartography of Korea widely available. The map is the first fairly accurate western map of Korea, though it clear that he had used Korean sources .

Very detailed map of Northern China, Japan and Korea. Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d' Anville (1697-1782), French cartographer. Compiled over 200 maps. This map is from his most important work " Nouvel Atlas de la Chine, published in The Hague 1737, "The principal cartographic authority on China during the 18th century." (Tooley)
d'Anville used maps prepared by Jesuit missionaries and commissioned by Emporer-Kangxi, who in 1708-1716 ordered a surveying of the country. Jean-Baptiste Regis (1664-1738), produced a map that came out in the Kangxi atlas and was used and edited by d'Anville and published in 1735 in du Halde (description de la Chine) and as "Royaume de Coree" (atlas de la Chine 1737). Despite the broadening of the southern part of the peninsula, this map was in the main accurate and was widely copied in the next 150 years (McCune 1977).

The map is important as it shows Dokdo as "Tchian-chan-tao," which is a Chinese pronunciation of "Usando," an old name of Dokdo, together with "Fan-ling-tao," a Chinese name for Ulleungdo Island. Korea is spelled by several names, including "Kaoli Koue" (country of Goryeo), "Royaume de Coree" (Kingdom of Korea) and "Tchao-Sien".
The map also gave reasonably accurate nomenclature of all eight provinces of Korea: "King-ki" (Gyeonggi-do Province), Kin Chan (Gyeongsang-do Province), "Hoang-hai" (Hwanghae-do Province), "Kiang-Yuen" (Gangwon-do Province), "Ping-Ngan" (Pyeongan-do Province) and "Hien-King" (Hamgyeong-do Province).
There are also faithful transcriptions of the regions around Seoul, including Cao-yang (Goyang) and "Yong haing" (Yangpyeong).

Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville (1697-1782) engraved his first map at the age of fifteen and produced many maps of high quality throughout his career. He became the finest cartographer of his time and carried on the French school of cartography developed by the Sanson and the de L'Isle families. Although he apparently never left the city of Paris, he had access to the reports and maps of French explorers, traders, and missionaries. During his long career he accumulated a large collection of cartographic materials that has been preserved. He was particularly interested in Asia and produced the first reasonably accurate map of China in 1735.
He became Royal Geographer and Cartographer to the King of France in the middle of the eighteenth century, at a time when French cartography was still considered to be the best in the world. He was the successor to Guillaume Delisle as the chief proponent of scientific cartography, and his influence on his contemporaries was profound. D'Anville was the finest cartographer of his time, "his attention to detail was exemplary, his maps having a great delicacy of engraving" (Tooley).
