More information

Insulinde: The survey map has been 'edited physically, to better show the physical structure of the entire area', i.e. instead of the state colours, altitude zones are now coloured in. The spelling of a number of place names has again been changed according to Gouvernement's Decree of 18 July 1925, and adapted to the traditional Dutch spelling instead of the native pronunciation: we have returned to the spellings Billiton, Bonthain and Cheribon on this map. These constant changes in the spelling of place names and the boundaries of residences in this colony are a plague to cartographers!

On the Digoel, the place Asike is included; at the time the map was printed, however, it had already been abandoned because the military occupation had suffered too much from malaria. The elevation shades highlight the Lake Plain through which the Idenburg and Rouffaer rivers flow. The Ambon residence is split into two, the Ambon and Ternate residences; each has a part of New Guinea. East Celebes was withdrawn from the Governorate of Celebes and Dependencies and transferred to the Menado residence.

In French Indo-China, the boundaries of the different parts (Cambodia, Laos, Annam, Cochin-China and Tonkin) are now clearly marked. With the state colours gone, the French concession in China, with Pointe Nivet, on Kwang-tshoe Bay (Zhanjiang Gang), with the island of Toeng-sjan (Dong hai dao) stands out less.
