Walking map of Aegina at a scale of 1:25000
Aegina is one of the Saronic Islands of Greece in the Saronic Gulf, 27 km (17 mi) from Piraeus. Tradition derives the name from Aegina, the mother of the hero Aeacus, who was born on the island and became its king.
Aegina is roughly triangular in shape, approximately 15 km (9.3 mi) from east to west and 10 km (6.2 mi) from north to south, with an area of 87.41 km2 (33.75 sq mi).
An extinct volcano constitutes two-thirds of Aegina. The northern and western sides consist of stony but fertile plains, which are well cultivated and produce luxuriant crops of grain, with some cotton, vines, almonds, olives and figs but the most characteristic crop of Aegina today (2000s) is pistachio. Economically, the sponge fisheries are of notable importance. The southern volcanic part of the island is rugged and mountainous, and largely barren. Its highest rise is the conical Mount Oros (531 m) in the south, and the Panhellenian ridge stretches northward with narrow fertile valleys on either side.
One side of the map shows the island and the back side 9 suggested walking routes with information about each route as well as historical facts about the island. The map includes all the road network, beaches, churches and archaeological sites

FOR THE ANAVASI MAPP APP BUY THE MAPS DIRECTLY IN THE APP
Anavasi maps are all available in digital format (geo-referenced images), combining new technologies with high-quality cartography.
For smartphones we recommend Anavasi mapp. Within the application one purchases each map (corresponding to the printed one) separately. After the map is purchased and downloaded, the application works offline. The map is identical to the printed one and shows your location in the center of the screen. We can also choose one of the proposed routes to follow.
The digital maps available from our online store are geo-referenced map images in 3 different formats. All three are included in the compressed zip file.
1. Map image georeferenced in GGRS87, the Greek Geodetic Reference System (filename *87.tif), which can be used in GIS programs or other cartographic data management programs.
2. Map image georeferenced in WGS84, the global geodetic reference system (filename *84.tif), which can be used in GIS programs or cartographic data management programs.
3. Map image in Kmz format, which can be loaded on most new Garmin GPS models. Please check out the Garmin site to see if your GPS model supports "Custom Maps".
We recommend to use the digital map always in combination with the paper map that gives us a complete overview of the area and is useful when planning our journey.
It is forbidden to copy and distribute the digital files. They can only be printed for non-commercial use.
