High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Caverio Map also known as Caveri Map or Canerio Map is a map drawn by Nicolay de Caveri, circa 1505. Currently at Bibliothèque Nationale de France in Paris. First described in 1890 and reproduced two years later. This undated map was one of the primary sources used to make the Waldseemüller map in 1507. Many historians believe that the Caveri map was completed in 1504-05. The map is signed with "Nicolay de Caveri Januensis". It was probably either made in Lisbon by the Genoese Canveri, or copied by him in Genoa from a Portuguese map very similar to the Cantino map, if not the Cantino map itself. The Cantino map was in Genoa toward the end of 1502 and presumably the following few years, when Caveri could have used it as the basis of his map.
