Johann Christoph Rhode (1713 - 1786) was a German cartographer active in the middle part of the 18th century. Rhode was a student of Leonhard Euler with whom he worked under the auspices of the Prussian Royal Academy of Sciences (Konigliche Akademie der Wissenschaften). There, in 1752, he was appointed resident geographer, where he was assigned to create a detailed German post-route map. He produced several other maps in conjunction with the Academy, most of which focused on Prussian Territories. The exceptions are a map of the North Pole (1753), this map of the Theater of the French and Indian War (1755), and Asia Minor in Antiquity (1780). Rhode's works were intended to be exemplars of Prussian cartography under the patronage of Frederick II (the Great) and were often lavishly engraved. His most important map is most likely Theatrum belli in America Septentrionali although his Neuer Geometrischer Plan der Gesammten Koniglich-Preussischen … Berlin is also similarly extravagant.
