Giovanni Antonio Magini was an Italian astronomer and mathematician. In 1592 he published De Planis Triangulis, where he described the use of the quadrants. In 1607 he published the astrological work De astrologica ratione. Magini also created an atlas of Italy (Atlante geografico d'Italia), which, however, was not published by his son until 1620. In 1935 the lunar crater Maginus was named after him.
