Description: The Russian Academy of Sciences was created in 1724 in St Petersburg. Joseph Nicolas de l' Isle was invited to head the department of geography. The making of the first atlas of the complete territory of the Russian Empire was a huge and complex enterprise. New bearings in trigonometry had to be taken all over the country. Existing cartographic material had to be obtained and analyzed. Among the Russian scientists that worked on the atlas was Kirilow, the man who published the first map of Russia in 1734. The best known expedition that yielded cartographic material was the great Northern Expedition (1735-1743) . Gmelin, Muller, Krshnininnikow, Krasilnikow and Steller were among its participants. In September 1745 Guillaume de l"isle's atlas of the Russian Empire 'Delilius Atlantem mappararum geographicarum Imperii Rossici produxit', the outstanding first atlas of Russia produced in Russia and based on Russian cartographical material, was published in St Petersburg with Russian, Latin and German text.
