The new edition of the map Zakros-Vai which is now called Zakros-Vai-Sitia covers the entire eastern edge of Crete, from Sitia, Cape Sidero and Zakros, to Xerokampos and Goudouras to the south. An area unknown to many people that has unique geological and natural wealth: caves, gorges, rare rocks and fossils, that has been proposed as geopark. The Geopark scientists have created a network of
signposted hiking and cycling routes displayed on the map. In the area of Kato Zakros one of the biggest Minoan palaces of Crete was unearthed that was a center of commerce and trade with countries of the East.
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.
