After studying mathematics in Paris he gained early experience of the sea and during many voyages assembled a collection of material for a hydrographic atlas that was published in Paris with the support of the Academie des Sciences in 1745 under the title Le Neptune Oriental. The atlas contained 22 charts, including the chart of Java that was based on accurate and meticulous surveys.
