Homann's company successfully competed with leading European mapmakers. At the end of 2000 during inventory work at the Austrian State Archives in Vienna, a document concerning the appointment of Johann Baptist Homann (1663–1724) as the imperial geographer was found. Included in the document was the corresponding petition by Homann to Emperor Charles VI.
