1944 - 1984 National Geographic Maps

To follow are the maps from the "National Geographic" homepage. Click the button to zoom, then click the area of the map you want to see and you will be able to see the details of the maps.
Ulleungdo was titled in Japanese pronunciation as "Utsuryo To" in 1944, and then changed to Korean name "Ullung Do [Dagelet]" in the 1952 and 1953 maps. In the map of 1960, there was the name of "Korea" in red beside the island.
On the other hand, Liancourt Rocks were kept labeled as "Take Shima [Liancourt Rcoks]" from the 1944 map until 1960 map. In the 1984 map of Japan, it was included in the map although the name was changed to "Tok Do (Liancourt Rocks)".
It seems that American people used to recognise Ulleungdo as Korean territory and Liancourt Rocks as Japanese territory even after the Peace Treaty.
