Joan / Johan /John Blaeu (23 September 1596 – 28 May 1673) was a Dutch cartographer. He was born in Alkmaar, the son of cartographer Willem Blaeu. In 1620 he became a doctor of law but he joined the work of his father. In 1635 they published the Atlas Novus (full title: Theatrum orbis terrarum, sive, Atlas novus) in two volumes. He and his brother Cornelius took over the studio after their father died in 1638. Joan became the official cartographer of the Dutch East India Company.From “the rarest edition of Blaeu’s Large Atlases”: only ten of the proposed eleven volumes were completed and issued in a limited quantity between 1658 and the the 1672 fire, which brought work on the final volume to a halt. Timothy Pont (c. 1565–1614) was a Scottish cartographer and topographer, the first to produce a detailed map of Scotland. Pont's maps are among the earliest surviving to show a European country in minute detail, from an actual survey.

Around 1649 Joan Blaeu published a collection of Dutch city maps named Tooneel der Steeden (Views of Cities). In 1651 he was voted into the Amsterdam council. In 1654 he published the first atlas of Scotland, devised by Timothy Pont. In 1662 he reissued the atlas with 11 volumes, and one for oceans. It was also known as Atlas Major.
