This is a military map, which shows the Korean Peninsula in an entirely different way to how we view it today, with the East Sea at the top and the Yellow Sea at the bottom. Japan is portrayed briefly to the south of the Korean Peninsula, and important border area matters are written in red in the margin of the map. It portrays clearly the Baekdudaegan Mountain Range forming the backbone of the peninsula and even areas north of the Amnokgang and Dumangang rivers. It marks military camps and fortress walls, as well as transportation routes in red. Defense facilities are marked in the coastal area, beacon mounds in the shape of beacons, and strategic positions in the shape of banners. There are some incorrect descriptions, such as that of Anmyeondo Island as a cape.
