Description
Old maps, as valuable historic materials, provide a glance of the level of sophistication in technology and artistry of the times when they were created. Korea's old maps that indicate our ancestors' interest in the northern areas of Joseon (1392~1910) show Baekdoo Mountain, Korea's sacred mountain, together with Ulleungdo and Dokdo. Through the consideration of the representative old maps, which are both striking and meaningful, an accurate view of Korea's history can be established and the superiority of Korea's old maps can be put forward.

Daedong Yeoji Jeon-do (Complete territorial map of the Great East (Korea))
Drawn on a scale of 1:920,000, Daedong Yeoji Jeon-do is a full map of Korea that condensed Kim Jung-Ho's Daedong Yeoji-do (Territorial map of the Great East (Korea), created in 1861) so that it can be seen at a glance. The mountain ranges were expressed as the continuing teeth of a saw, with the saw's thickness showing the size of a mountain range. Considering the contents of the map and the manner in which they are expressed, Daedongyeojijeondo is presumed to have also been created by Kim Jung-Ho. This map marks in detail both the locations of gun's and hyeon's, the two administrative districts during the Joseon Dynasty, as well as the road system.
