Abraham Goos
 fl. 1614-43; Pieter Goos (son) c. 1615 -75

Abraham and Pieter Goos were Dutch cartographers who were active during the late 16th and early 17th centuries. Abraham Goos was born in 1590, and his brother Pieter was born in 1616. Abraham started his career as an engraver, but he later shifted his focus to cartography. He published several maps and atlases, including a maritime atlas titled "De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Weereld," which was first published in 1666.

Pieter Goos continued the family tradition of cartography and also became a publisher. He published maps and sea charts, including a famous sea atlas called "Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Werelt," which was first published in 1669. Pieter's works were highly regarded for their accuracy and detail, and they were widely used by Dutch merchants and navigators.

The Goos brothers collaborated on several maps and atlases, and their works were known for their detailed depictions of coastlines, harbors, and other geographic features. Their maps were also highly decorative, featuring ornate cartouches, sea monsters, and sailing ships. Their works were widely distributed and were influential in the development of Dutch cartography during the Golden Age of Dutch exploration and trade.
