VOC

Hello I'm local

I’m a private room. I’m great for a couple or two friends. I have two beds that can be seperated. I have a shower and a sink and the toilet is in the hall, just 2 meters from the room.

Hello I’m a VOC colony mapmaker. The Dutch East-India Company was given a monopoly in trade in (largely uncharted) Asia. To be as up to date as possible on shipping, the VOC governors authorized all merchants, skippers, and mates to share all written information about their journeys. As of 1619, all incoming information in the Republic was systematically processed in Amsterdam by specially contracted map makers, like me. The VOC also acquired a monopoly on the publication of these maps. It was not in their interest that the British competition would be able to profit from the information. However, this monopoly didn’t turn out to be very effective: the VOC’s knowledge found its way to the general public, though for example Willem Blaeu’s 1635 world atlas.
