Abraham Maas (fl. 1715-1735) was a Dutch cartographer; little is known of his background, but he was among the western European geographers employed at the Russian Academy of Sciences. He is known to have produced maps of the Gulf of Finland (1700), the River Dessekebe (1706), and the first map to apply the name 'Uzbek' geographically, Tabula Nova de Mare Caspium et Usbekorum region.) The latter would provide the basis for Nova Maris Caspii et regionis Usbeck, cum provincijs adjacentibus vera delinetio), reduced by Johann Peter van Ghelen and published by Homanns Heirs in 1735. He also produced a very accurate chart of St. Petersburg in 1734.
