- that Chung Sang-Ki had made in 1740's has been famous for following features, accurate expression of outlines of Korea, the use of creative scale called as Baek-Li-Chuk(百里尺), the expression of such many kinds of artificial elements as settlement, road system, stagecoach stations, beacon, defensive castles, as well as such physical elements as mountain system, rivers,. For those reasons, several scholars have studied this map, but most studied made by the present have concerned about superficial features of this kinds of maps. Thus this study aims to understand further in the contexts of Korean cartographic history. The major findings of this study are as follows. First, through the examination of existing old Korean maps, 1 tried to find out developing stage of map-making that could be made in. As a result, 1 was able to identify that the shape of the Korean peninsula that by Lee，Yi-Moeng( 李願命) and the manuscript copies of Y oon Y oung ’ s( 尹鎭) map expressed is relatively accurate. In other words, the exaggerated shapes of northern area of Korean peninsula expressed by earlier maps in the Lee Dynasty were corrected by a few maps made in the late 17th century. Second, Chung Sang- Ki(鄭尙轉) had made without field survey, especially compiled existing maps as a creative manner. In his map compilation, Baek-Li一Chuk( 百里，R) was used instead of a grid imported from china.
