since it was published in 2001.
Having said that, they have medieval maps of the area
from 1500-1800 from page 25 to page 35.
There are probably around 70+ thematic maps
and about 5 to 10 reference maps in this particular atlas.
The range is from 45 degrees latitude north to 47 degrees latitude north and 13 degrees
longitude east to 16.45 degrees longitude east.
This range covers all of Slovenia, the
north eastern portion of Italy, the southern half of Austria, the southwestern tip of
Hungary, and the northern to north eastern parts of Croatia.
A good portion of the
Adriatic Sea is also visible on the largest map.
The scale of most if not all of the maps is
There are no larger scale maps.

Colors of the squares show
the different socioeconomic orientation of towns.
“Urbanization in 1996” pg 98.
This is a combination of choropleth and graduated
symbol map in order to show both the type of area a place is in terms of urban (light
red, white for unpopulated”) and the circles represent the actual population of a city.
