The large map reproduced here incorporates information on North Spitsbergen, the region in which the search was concentrated; “the first photographic copies [of the map] were handed to the Swedish relief expedition at its start with the airplane Uppland” (p. 4). De Geer was a member of the Swedish Arc Measurement Expeditions of 1899-1902, some of the results from which were the basis for the map.
