The map is divided in 11 categories; that of influential people, kings and rulers, laws and judgements, occupation, climate and seasons, earthquakes and eruptions, population of the nation, pestilence, education, domestic events and international influence. 

The map illustrated with pencil drawn graphs of population growth, estimation of temperature throughout the centuries and volcanic eruption frequency.
