Abstract:The development of mapping in Palestine paralleled increasing interest by Western nations in the area. By concentrating on the city of Jaffa, the growth of a range of maps for an important area of the Holy Land is exemplified. Cartography by nations, armies, companies and individuals was undertaken for political/military, religious, survey and legal and economic purposes. A bibliography of maps is given.
