He is known for the projects of improvement on the Ports of Leixões, Lisbon and Macau. On the chart are depicted the Macau Peninsula and the Islands of 'Lapa' , Taipa -still divided and only connected by a dam, big Taipa also appears with the name 'Kaikong'- Malau Chau and part of D. João. Being a hydrographic chart, are given soundings surveyed in 1884 with a project to the Inner Harbor, jetty of Taipa, docks of Green Island and Praia Grande, dike of Taipa and marginal covering between the Green Island and Pac-Siac.
