Abstract: Marinus of Tyre (c. 60-130 AD) was a noted geographer of antiquity. Served as director of the Great Library of Alexandria and produced a map of the ecumene. Unfortunately his work is not preserved, except for some partial critiques that Ptolemy made to work.Marino contributed significantly to preserve the scientific tradition of the Alexandrian school of Geography and mapping development. Improved roman ecumene map or Orbis Terrarum, better known as "Map of Agrippa"; incorporated into its territorial map new knowledge derived from the increasing expansion of the Roman Empire flourishing and endowed him with qualities of scientific cartography. Used an orthogonal cylindrical projection, much more appropriate and accurate than that of Ptolemy, and stood north of the lengths of their map on the island of Thule, on the island now called Bjorko (Ostrobothnia, Finland, 63 degrees 15'N, 21 degrees 16'E).In this paper we focus on geographic system analysis and used in the discussion of the ends of your map so that ultimately, we aim to contribute to reassess his work as a geographer.
