We had one of these maps years ago. It's a common ploy with map publishers almost everywhere, including the Ordnance Survey. They will put in tiny errors that make no practical difference to the usefulness of the map so that they'll be able to spot breach of copyright if another publisher reproduces the map. They can't be easy to spot or they'd have no value. The sort of thing they do is, say, have one windmill symbol that has a corner missing from one of its sails, or misplace a canal lock by 30 metres or incorrectly put a double letter in the name of some obscure hamlet. There will be, maybe 20 or 30 such tiny errors on every sheet of an Ordnance Survey map and most other map serious publishers do the same. On Greek maps, I believe, deliberate errors include such things as misplacing the tonos on a word.Polyanna wrote:l I actually read the small print at the bottom of one of my maps which said that "Some information may not be accurate to avoid copyright problems".

“during the first months of 2010 there will be a new edition of the Atlas of Crete, with many additions and a new, more portable, format.”.
the maps are not publicly available. (I think one member of this board may have a private copy but understandably he doesn’t put it about!)
