Although,Usando was confirmed as Today’s Ulleungdo’s Jukdo after 1696,

There still exist of Old recognization of Usando, it is located west of Ulleungdo or just a another name of Ulleungdo.

It is not sure there are some relations or not, there are no record of Chosun dynasty’s Ulluengdo Inspection from 1834 to 1880’s.

I guess because of no inspection from 1384 to 1880’s, they would forgot “Usando-Jukdo”?


For example, see the collection of Kim Jonho’s maps.

First time, his maps e.g. 邱図 on 1834 and 東與 on1850’s, he wrote Usando-Jukdo on his maps.

But,he changed Usando recognization  that “Usan于山” is just a another old name of Ulleungdo, referenced recognization of 東国與地勝覧.
