This year marks the 500th anniversary of the Piri Reis world map, which was created in 1513 by the Ottoman admiral and cartographer Piri Reis using information from various sources. Only part of the map survives today, showing the western coasts of Europe and North Africa and the coast of Brazil with reasonable accuracy.
