The Venetian Cadastro of Vostizza (1700), the first such cadastral survey in Greece, has been magnificently published by Dokos and Panayopoulos in 1993, but it has never been used in a GIS project. The aim of this project is to produce a full database, populated with the quantitative and geographical data from the initial Cadastro and to assess the precision of the cadastral survey of the Venetian engineers using a modern GIS system. The research (with the assistance of the “Laboratory of Geophysical-Satellite Remote Sensing and Archaeo-environment”) has demonstrated the high quality and geographical precision of the Venetian engineers and has re-constructed the distribution of land both after and before the Venetian conquest of the town of Vostizza and its territorio.
