Cornelis de Jode (1568 – 17 October 1600) was a cartographer, engraver and publisher from Antwerp. He was the son of Gerard de Jode, also a cartographer. Cornelis studied science at Academy of Douai
When his father died in 1591, Cornelis de Jode took over the work on his father's uncompleted atlas, which he eventually published in 1593 as Speculum Orbis Terrae . Despite that contemporary scholars consider many of de Jode's maps to be copies of both Portuguese and Spanish cartographers in detail and style of atlas of the time Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Ortelius, de Jode's atlas never sold well due to his plagiarize.
