How was Amerigo Vespucci a hero?

He wasn't a hero. A hero saves someone or does something exceptional and he didn't . In fact, he lied about what he did do. The English Explorers Society proved in 1889 that his account of finding North America was a lie. A hero doesn't lie or make himself bigger than he is in life.

What he did contribute was the insight that the America was a new continent, as his maps indicated, aiding navigation to and from the New World.

What were the purposes of Amerigo Vespucci's voyages?

Several of his voyages were merely as an observer by the invitation of Manuel I of Portugal. On a voyage in 1500 which was commanded by Pedro Alvares Cabral, the Portuguese discovered Brazil. When this expedition returned to Portugal with the news of this discovery, the King wanted to know if this was an island or part of a continent that the Spanish were exploring further north. Vespucci was once again selected as an observer under the command of Goncalo Coelho. On these voyages they discovered that continent extended further south than was thought.
