Josef Jüttner

Josef Jüttner (12 September 1775, Bernartice – 27 April 1848, Prague) was a cartographer and Austrian army general, author of the first exact map of Prague based on geodetic measurement.


Jüttner studied at the gymnasium (secondary school) in Bílá Voda near Javorník. In 1793, he entered the Austrian army, and between 1794–95 fought against France. He spent the years 1799–1800 as an artillery soldier in Ingolstadt, where he had lectures on mathematics and physics at the Jesuit University.

Starting in 1801, Jüttner taught in Prague.

The etching for the map was done by Prague's graphic master Josef Alois Drda [cs]; the lettering by Alois Mussil. In 1818 Franz Anton von Kolowrat-Liebsteinsky issued a number of good quality copies of the map under the title Grundriß der königlichen Hauptstadt Prag at a scale of 500 Viennese lots (60 lots = 1 finger).
