The newly developed techniques of mapping and cartographically inspired ideas formed a key part of this new repertoire, as early modern mapping allowed rulers to make and contest political claims without any actual knowledge of the territory being claimed or what lay within it. Thus, cartographic tools of government – and the exclusively territorial form of rule that they made possible – were first put to work in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century colonial expansion, providing a foundation for their application later within and between European states.
Complementing this diversity was the prevalence of overlapping and shared rule. In the shift to the modern international system, two major changes to authority occurred. First, the jurisdictional and overlapping forms of authority were eliminated. Second, territorial authority became the sole basis for sovereignty in the modern system. It also underwent a significant change: medieval territorial authority, based on a center-out concept of control of places, was transformed into the modern form of territorial authority, in which control is conceived of as flowing in from firm boundaries that delineate a homogeneous territorial space.
58 Many of the jurisdictional complexities represented by foreign or independent enclaves within the boundaries of states were eliminated by the Revolutionary and Napoleonic conquests, and they were not restored at Vienna. Territorial rule was reconceptualized as a space defined inward from the boundaries rather than outward from a center (or from multiple centers). This period also saw the final termination of the complex overlapping and shared authorities that had existed in many parts of the continent in the late Middle Ages and in the Holy Roman Empire through the eighteenth century.
