The first part of this work shows "how to plot all manner of grounds... by the semicircle, plain table, and chain [&c.]". The second "shewing how to take the ground-plot of any city or corporation: as also the mensuration of roads, highways, and rivers, with the manner of making a map of any county or kingdom".

Holwell assisted Leybourne in surveying London after the great fire of 1666 for John Ogilby and William Morgan. He also assisted Ogilby in his road survey of England and Wales, published as Britannia in 1675, which with its strip maps of roads was a landmark in British cartography.
