Map of Southern Coast of Jeju
This map was made during a British naval expedition in 1845 led by Edward Belcher (1799-1877), who was engaged in various surveying naval expeditions throughout the world. On June 25, 1845, HMS Samarang landed on the coast of Jeju. Using a nearby island, Udo, as the naval base, this vessel remained in Jeju region for 37 days, surveying the coastal areas of Jeju Island, Geomundo, and Geogeumdo.
