Caption: Korean world map, 17th-18th century. Known as Chonhado (World Map), the form and circular shape of such Korean maps were largely unchanged from the earliest known examples in the 16th century. The main features were an internal continent surrounded by a sea, with an external continent and sea around the edge. The names and descriptions of places (such as mountains and rivers) would include references to the religious philosophy of Taoism.
