Presentation of the Research Programme "Representations of the Coastal Zone of Cyprus" (Harokopio University, 11 October 2019)

The twelve-year duration research project entitled "Representations of the Coastal Zone of Cyprus through Historical Map Segments and Other Illustrations" was  developed by the Department of Geography of Harokopio University, Athens, under the scientific supervision of Professor Christos Chalkias and funded by the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation.

The presentation of the new research project of Sylvia Ioannou Foundation took place on Friday 11 October 2019 at Harokopio University in Athens, among friends and colleagues.

The main objective of the project is to design and implement an open access web application that identifies, organises and classifies the content of historical representations of the island of Cyprus.

The open access web application offers all interested parties, researchers and enthusiasts the opportunity to journey to the historical past of Cyprus through documented pictorial material and to investigate and contrast it with the current reality. In addition, any user of the application may, if they wish, contribute towards further enriching the documentation by providing new material or by participating in the interpretation of the existing content.
