Mt Psiloritis dominates the center of the island and the hearts of the Cretan people. It is an imposing, steep and rugged mountain, the place of upbringing of Zeus, of the Cretan wild goats and the unconquered Cretan soul. Trails climb from all sides to the highest peak where there is a stone chapel of the Holy Cross.
Some new hiking trails are recorded on the map, such as the new long distance trail "the Cretan Way" - and the new mountain shelter in Lakka Mygerou which has become the starting point for the most popular route to the summit. There are very interesting ancient sites on Psiloritis such as the two famous caves, Idaion and Kamares, and the archaeological site of Zominthos - a Minoan palace that has not yet revealed all its secrets. On the reverse side of the map, there are suggested walking routes, with small texts and photos.
Anavasi maps are all available in digital format (geo-referenced images), combining new technologies with high-quality cartography.
For use on smartphones (with Android Operating system) we recommend Anavasi mapp app. 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.
For iPhone/iPad users we recommend purchasing our maps through the Avenza Maps application.
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.
