This article applies statistical, comparative and interdisciplinary methods and a cartographic study- oriented approach to discuss the characteristics of cartography in the 19th-century Vietnam, focusing on Hoàng Lê Cảnh Hưng bản đồ. Although the extant atlas is a copy made in the 19th century (1833), it retains many of the original text captions. However, some changes were also made in accordance with the copyist’s geographical knowledge at that time.
