Kitchener's survey of Cyprus 1878-1883

Through a 19th century historic map, a wealth of information on the geography and culture of Cyprus is brought to life.

The online application entitled 'Kitchener's Survey of Cyprus 1878-1883 - The First Complete Trigonometrical Survey of Cyprus' is based on the results of the Research Programme 'Construction of a Cartographic Database and online application of the geographic information of the Kitchener’s Map of Cyprus (1885 edition)', created by the Department of Geography at Harokopio University in 2016, under the scientific supervision of Professor Christos Chalkias and funded by the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation.

The original map belongs to the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation Collection (M.0254).
