Captain Matthew Flinders was one of the most successful navigators and cartographers of his time. He sailed with Captain William Bligh, circumnavigated Australia, survived shipwreck and disaster only to be imprisoned for violating the terms of his scientific passport by changing ships and carrying prohibited papers. From an early age, it was his desire to be an explorer. He realised that the ability to make the best use of equipment at hand was a necessary skill of an explorer. He identified and corrected the effect upon compass readings of iron components and equipment on board wooden ships.
