Giovanni Maria Cassini (1745 – 1824) was an Italian globe maker, geographer, engraver, and cartographer. His  main cartographic work was the Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale of  1792-1801. In 1790, the Calcografia Camerale of Rome published his twelve terrestrial globe gores, that updated the world cartography after the three voyages of Captain James Cook around the globe.
