South East Asia Map, 1771

This 1771 French Map shows yet further improvements in the understanding of the coastlines, although in the Indies there are still some information missing. This map shows the all important trade winds of the Indian Ocean and for South East Asia. European Traders relied on these winds to help move their ships to and from Asia.
