At the time (fifteenth or sixteenth century), it was not yet the standard to position the north at the top of a map, one or more compass roses were inserted.
Some old sea charts (portulans) were very richly ornamented, dedicated to a prince or an admiral. They were of course not made to be used at sea.
And on the richest manuscripts, the compass roses can be particularly complex with geometric, mechanical and floral patterns, which, mounted in jewelry, look a lot like Art Nouveau.
