The version of this map published by Ortelius in 1570 was the basis for many similar maps published in the early to middle years of the seventeenth century. It is oriented west and shows Morocco and small sections of Spain, Portugal, and Algeria. This version has full color and a decorative cartouche in the lower left corner that has two satyrs on either side of it. There are illustrations of ships in the Gulf of Cadiz. Small red clusters of buildings throughout Morocco represent some of the larger settlements. For hundreds of years mapmakers used a traditional coloring system to designate certain items on their maps. For example, they used green for forests and estates, brown or black for hills, red for towns, and blue for lakes, rivers, and seas
