Father Eusebio Francisco Kino, (shown her as Chino),was a Jesuit priest, missionary, explorer, map-maker, mathematician, and astronomer. Kino was a missionary who founded many missions and explored areas in southwestern North America, and in 1681, he sailed as a missionary from Spain to what is now Mexico City, Mexico.
In 1691, he began a series of more than 40 expeditions and established that lower California was not an island; it was a peninsula - the Baja Peninsula. This map was published in 1702 by this prolific explorer.
