Edition: June 2009
This is the first GIS map of Kos hence the island is mapped with a topographic precision in proportion to the map scale.
It is the first time the island’s entire coastline is mapped. Cartography was done with a specially equipped and staffed cartographic vessel. This means that you can locate all beaches of the island, down to the tiniest cove! In fact, the special features of every single beach are recorded: whether it is sandy or pebbled, whether it features natural tree shade, water, a beach bar or organized water sports, whether the seabed in front of the beach is sandy or rocky (so that you will know where to anchor).
The road network of Kos is featured so completely for the first time. Every road, down to the secondary dirt roads and dead-ends, is illustrated on the map with precision. Naturally the main road network is clearly depicted, along with residential areas, the airport, the ports and the entire tourist infrastructure of Kos.
Map of Kos is printed on Polyart plastic “paper” , making it totally waterproof and rip-proof. You can fold it and unfold it a hundred times, fold it in irregular ways, dunk it in the sea or leave it out in the rain. This map is indestructible!
NOTE: In this first edition of the map of Kos, only the southern and a small portion of the island’s northern coast were mapped using TERRAIN’s cartographic vessel (due to strong northern winds during the mapping expedition). The majority of the northern coast was mapped by cartographers of the ground team, so some minor omissions may occur.
