Ernest Dudley Chase stood prominently among the eminent pictorial map artists of the 20th century, having produced an estimated 50 maps disseminated between the 1930s and 1960s.

Chase’s maps cover a broad range of geographical locations and varied topics including historical and current events, architecture, and technology. They typically incorporate large numbers of minutely rendered illustrations with explanatory captions that blend a scholarly approach with wit, patriotism, and optimism.

The biographical literature titled "A Meticulous Maker of Maps" delineates Chase's unwavering pursuit of perfection. It narrates his methodical execution of intricate imagery under a magnifying apparatus, meticulously etching each detail "dot by dot" employing diminutive pens.
