Road map of the region of Achaia in a scale of 1:100 000, with a city plan of central Patras.
Achaia or Achaea, sometimes even written Achaia, is the translitteration of Αχαΐα in Greek. Achaia is a region in the Northwest of the Peloponnese, though administratively a part of the region of Western Greece, and its capital is Patras, one of the main cities of Greece and a large port on the Gulf of Patras. Other major cities are Kiato, Aigio, Kato Achaia, Kalavryta.

*Anavasi makes high standard hiking or touring maps, with accurate cartographic data that compose a detailed background, with coordinates in EGSA87 & WGS84 (displayed on the map) to find your position using your GPS device. The map is printed on polyart, the recyclable synthetic paper to take with you in all your activities.
The map you see here is the result of the cooperation of many people and tries to capture the complexity of the Greek landscape. For maps, as for many other things, views and experiences are endless, different every time and for everyone. This map is the result of bibliographic research as well as field work, made in collaboration with climbers and local alpine clubs.
In each new version of a map we ask ourselves how we could make it better. We imagined new categories of paths, adventure trails, exposed paths and climbing ridges. We added new categories of information such as mountain running races, and mountain skiing routes.
A map not just about the cartography, it is also about our experiences in the field. We share favorite routes and describe the paths in a few words.
There is no final version of a map, the changes in the landscape are continuous and the improvements or information that can be added are inexhaustible. Whether from new data or from the collective experience of the mountaineering community, we aim to add more and more levels of information to the map to capture the dynamic evolution of the landscape, the experiences and knowledge that unfold and the new activities that develop."

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.
