EURATLAS-INFO 12: July 2006
Dear Euratlas-Info Subscribers,
Here are some new features in the Euratlas website

Euratlas Home
1) Towns Pages in the Physical Atlas of Europe
Now you can highlight a city from a list of 96 European towns by clicking on its name and you will also have a direct access to the Wikipedia entry and to the official website of the chosen city. What's more, the modern population and the date of the first written historical account of each city are given.
See the main towns page:

2) The Regency of Algiers 1837
The Cartographies section presents a rare map of the Algerian lands as they were in the years 1835-1837 during the conquest of Algeria by France. This map is surprising because it shows, in pink, the territories occupied by the French troops and, in ochre, the extent of "Arab Algeria". Moreover, there are six cartouches with detail maps of La Tafna, the Surroundings of Algiers, the Landing Zone at Sidi-Ferruch, the City Map of Algiers, the Road from Algiers to Medea and the Surroundings of Constantine.

3) The Kingdom of Poland 1752
Also in the Cartographies section, we are proud to present a beautiful map of the Kingdom of Poland in 1752 by Gilles and Didier Robert de Vaugondy. The Polish State is shown with its traditional boundaries, including large parts of modern Ukraine and Belarus, that is to say as it was before the First Partition of the Kingdom.
