This chart was made obviously just for navigational aid. All the land masses are blank with only their outlined drawn on the map. As the title states are drawn both the true and estimated route from Macau to Pulo Timon -modern day Tioman Island on the coast of Malaysia. Pulo Timon, Pulo Pissang and Pulo Aor are all placed together on the bottom left corner of the map and are common toponyms as safe havens in navigational guides. Both routes goes through the Macclesfield Bank and avoid the Paracels for fear of shipwreck. From the coast of Cambodia until the Tioman Island the line route is accompanied by soundings.
