    Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a German geographer and cartographer, well known for his important maps of the Americas. Although his early studies focused on religion, he soon shifted his focus to engraving and cartography and founded his own publishing house in 1702. One of the most reputable cartographers of the 18th century, he was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI in 1715. After his death, he was succeeded by the Homann heirs company.
