Notes

Map of India, China and Southeast Asia. The map features greater detail due to increased geographical knowledge of India derived from the English East India Company, which was fervently competing with the French for predominance in the region. Similarly, such information on coastal China, Japan, Indonesia and Malaysia came from the Dutch, who still dominated trade from these lands while the inland details of these nations was primarily derived from the missionary efforts of the Jesuits. Relief is shown pictorially.
