This paper explores the use of 14th c. portolan charts, 15th c. isolarii, and more recent printed maps. When employed together with G.I.S. and satellite imagery, they may recreate the topography of the island of Euboea during the period of its domination by the Franks and Venetians, who annexed it in 1204 and were in their turn expelled by the Ottomans in 1470.
