The atlas was issued in Latin and then in German, French, and Russian. It built on the work of Ivan Kirilov but, as Postnikov points out, it "brings together all the geographical discoveries of the early 18th century to give a fuller picture of the entire Empire than shown in the so-called Kirilov atlas. The maps were mostly based on instrumental surveys, geographical descriptions and maps compiled by the Petrine geologists and their successors."
