First of all, this map shows the extent of the knowledge Norman cartographers had gained about America, especially in Acadia and Brazil. A juxtaposition of French and Spanish coats of arms seems to express a joint domination over the fabulous riches of the New Worlds. This portolan is less a navigational tool than a political document.
