George Braun and Frans Hogenberg are known for the production of an atlas of cities entitled 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum'. One of the most important works in the history of both cartography and topography. The first volume was published in 1572 and the final volume in 1617. It was edited by Braun and largely engraved by Hogenberg.
