Fries' map is a reduced size version of Waldeseemuller's 1513 map, the earliest modern map to focus on the region. All prior maps of the region were prepared based upon the work of Claudius Ptolemy.
Based largely upon the Ruysch world map of 1507, Sri Lanka and the Indian subcontinent are relatively correct in their sizes. This map is among the earliest documents recording the Portuguese explorations into the Indian Ocean, and is of primary importance in the mapping of the India and Southeast Asia.
