Tycho Brahe had studied and travelled widely in Europe, buying instruments, visiting mathematicians and making astronomical observations. By the year 1592 the building of his observatory had been completed. Here talented young astronomers were given the opportunity to improve their knowledge of science under the direction of Tycho Brahe and with the help of up-to-date instruments. One of these students was Willem Blaeu. Map of the island of Hven from a copper etching of Willem Janszoon Blaeu's Blaeu Atlas 1662. Willem made this map based on his experience as a student of Tycho Brahe between 1594 and 1596. On this map North is up, Denmark to the west and Scania, now part of Sweden, to the east. It shows the location of Uraniborg just above the centre, and below the linked set of ponds that Tycho had created to both collect water and power his papermill and other small industries on the island.
