Syros in the Cyclades on light, a waterproof and tear-resistant, contoured and GPS compatible map at 1:20,000 from Anavasi for exploring the island on foot or by car. On the reverse is a street plan of Ermoupoli / Hermoupolis showing various facilities and places of interest, plus contact details for various accommodation options.
Landscape of the island is vividly shown by contours at 10m with altitude colouring, hill shading and spot heights. The map indicates dirt roads in poor condition and difficult tracks, with distances marked on many local routes, plus locations of petrol stations. Country paths distinguish between wide and well defined or narrow and/or poorly defined routes. Recommended hiking trails indicate their approximate duration. Symbols show campsites and places of interest including beaches, archaeological sites, etc. All place names are in both Greek and Latin alphabets. The map has a 1km UTM grid plus latitude/longitude margin ticks and crosshairs at 1’.
The whole of the reverse side is taken by a street plan of Ermoupoli / Hermoupolis. Names of larger streets are in both Greek and Latin alphabets. The plan is accompanied by contact details for hotels or appartments across the whole island. Map legend and the text include English.
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.
