The man at the helm of the atlas project was a French cartographer, Joseph Nicolas de L'isle (whose name often appears as Delisle). The map shows Kamchatka as part of Yakutia (Iakutia), with the Kamchatka Sea (Kamczackoe More) separating the peninsula from the important settlement at Okhotsk to the west.
One of the most interesting features of the map is the depiction of the overland travel routes linking inland Siberia to the coasts of the Arctic and Pacific.
