The, map printed in 1507, is the first world map in which the name "America" appears for the lands of the New World. The compiler of the map, Martin Waldseemüller (1474-1519), was a German-born priest and accomplished cartographer. Historians say the 494-year-old map caused the hemisphere to be named for explorer Amerigo Vespucci instead of Columbus.
