The Chaves map of Florida is a prime example of an explorer's map since it records the recent discoveries of Cabeza de Vaca, De Soto, and Moscoso. The map revealed little information on the interior of North America, but the details presented have been definitely linked with known features. The village of Aijx undoubtedly became known to the Spaniards as Ais, and the Mississippi, though distorted, appeared as the R.de S.Spiritu , the name given it by early Spanish explorers. Tascalisa lies on the map as closely as possible to where today's Tuscaloosa, Alabama is. The Chaves map published by Ortelius was, therefore, one of the earliest printed maps of the territory based on actual observations.

Also on the same sheet are maps of eastern Mexico and of Peru (where de Soto was the first Spaniard to meet Inca Emperor Atahuallpa), thus completing the picture of Spain's American possessions.
