PLAN of FORT LOUIS
A plan of the fortifications and city of Fort Louis, France, located on what used to be a very strategically important island on the Rhine. A key A-N, 4-17 explained on page 351. The exact location of the Fort for georeferencing within a GIS is unknown due to changes in the river from canalisation projects; therefore the coordinates and scale are only estimates. Fields are shown with stippling, trees are shown pictorially, and shorelines concentrically along with some stippling. The caption at the bottom describes the location of the fortress in relation to populated areas in the region, although it is approximately 31 km upriver of Strasbourg.
No scale bar or graticule are present on the map; coordinates and scale were obtained via georeferencing.
