Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703 – 21 March 1772) was a French hydrographer, geographer, and intellectual.

Born in Paris, Bellin was head of France’s hydrographic office, as well as a member of both the Académie de Marine and of the Royal Society of London. Over a 50-year career, he produced a large number of maps of particular interest to the Ministère de la Marine. His maps of Canada and of French territories in North America (New France, Acadia, Louisiana) are particularly valuable. He died at Versailles.
