I found this map on the internet .. in the comments many people said it might be wrong.

1-The name of the countries are wrong with wrong border.

2-Its too accurate.

3-Its not arabic language either its not ottoman.

This is the most critics about the map.

So is this map correct ?

I think its not because the name of the countries. But what about the accuracy and its langauge

  • The full map of the world appears here: c2.staticflickr.com/2/1556/23923335665_6d6c9612cf_o.png Note that Tasmania is shown as a peninsula, even though it had been proven to be an island in 1798. Michigan and the Great Lakes are very distorted, as is common on early maps. Jun 30 '16 at 21:51
  • Here is the official map of the US, published by the Ottomans in 1803, with an article discussing it. This article describes the writing as "slightly modified Arabic script.": slate.com/blogs/the_vault/2014/10/16/… The American coast line varies between the two maps. Jun 30 '16 at 21:56
