A map of the "Newe Worlde" from 1572

There are a few things that held back cartography in period most of which were only a problem on large scales (people could produce good maps of a town or the local area but not of an entire continent). Large scale maps of what was known of the world were not often seen and the belief that the world was flat didn't help much.
