Map of Akbuk wanted

Does anyone have or can anyone knock up an outline map of Akbuk showing:
a) the different area's like Yesilkent, Kumkent, etc
b) area's of historical interest (the old church, harbour)
c) the key shops & restaurants in the town

Something alongs the line of the grid map on the Altinkum forum would be fantastic.
This is a challenge for any budding cartographers out there!! Come on, someone take it up, please!!

Thanks

For me I solved the problem of a lack of a map by spending 2 weeks walking almost every street and road in Akbuk proper. I now have a very good sense of the place and geography.

As to historical sites of interests, the joy of discovery was better than a map. For restaurants and bars I had a very good time checking these out for myself and intend to resume my mission when I return in a few weeks...:D:D:D:D

Images were taken within the past 3 years.

With this software rom Google, you can zoom in down to street level but the reduced resolution to get them onto this forum makes them a bit fuzzy, so I didn't bother.

Microsoft are to launch their own satellite imaging software in the next few months and you will be able to count the number of manhole covers in Akbuk (if there are any)!!

The manhole cover in my garden is broken & the caretakers only got a moped. :)

Perhaps but a bit risky if the smell from the manhole mixes with the petrol smell from the old bike, the whole sitesi could be covered in it.

so we don't have any sort of map detailing the town of Akbuk between us?

Disappointing!!

Do you have any part of akbuk mapped? if so we could start with yours and then others could maybe add to it.We probably all could map the areas we live in and put them all together. If I could get all the pieces I would have a go at the map.

Hi Juco
No I don't have any sort of map and I don't really know much about Akbuk to have a go at one.
Thanks anyway

The Images of south wester turkey have dramatically improved with the latest version of Google Earth. You can now see the properties in Akbuk very clearly, although the images are some 2 years old.
To find Akbuk, do a search on Bodrum and then negotiate up to Akbuk Bay.

We downloaded Google Earth but when we looked at our area in Fethiye it was way out of date perhaps 18 months to 2 years.
We were very disappointed as we thought it was a satellite program that was up to date within a month or so.
We will probably uninstall it !
