For a long time printing was a technique mainly used for the spreading of cartographic knowledge among educated people. Printed maps contained data as umderstood by scholars at that time. The development of cartography in scholarly circles was hampered by the lack of data available and the printers themselves were often scholars at that time. The development of cartography in scholary circles was hampered by the lack of data available to scholars. Better data was often available elsewhere as can be seen in manuscript maps of Portuguese, Dutch, French or English navigators, but such data did not always arrive at the people who printed maps for the public. It was only during the 18th century that the world of navigators and the world of scholars and publishers merged into one.
