Emory based his geography on the best sources available at the time; the map cites fifteen "Authorities"—ranging from Alexander von Humboldt's 1803 researches in New Spain to Kennedy's 1843 map of Texas—but is chiefly indebted to Arrowsmith's 1841 map of Texas. Martin and Martin call this "probably the best map of the region at the time of annexation" and note that the "rivers in Texas and coastline were shown in clear detail, while numerous small towns in East Texas were placed and named." Because the results of Fremont's groundbreaking expedition of 1843–1844 had not yet been published, Emory had to rely on earlier sources for his depiction of the Great Basin and the central Rockies, including C. St. Vrain. The northern Great Plains is occupied by a "Proposed Nebraska Territory," and the various native nations are carefully identified in the Indian Territory. The present example is from the larger of two sizes of the map that were issued; no priority between the formats has been established.
