In looking at the west on this map it is certainly indebted to their exploration, as well as that of Humboldt, in showing the mountain configurations, as well as the major rivers. Appropriate for the time, Mexico encompasses most of the West and Southwest from the Arkansas drainage to the Pacific Ocean. California itself is crudely understood, with mostly only coastal mission towns noted, and a large "Partie Inconnue" (parts unknown) labelled through most of present day central California and Nevada.
