The Historical Atlas of Poland. Detailed Maps of the 16th Century consisted of five volumes, presenting eight voivodeships of that period. The main map encompassing the area of over 100.000 km² shows the entire settlement network: cities, villages, mills, inns and others. Each settlement has a specified 16th century name, type of ownership, size and fulfilled central functions. The entire road network and administrative borders, from voivodeships to districts and from dioceses to parishes, are marked. They are accompanied by theme maps, city plans, a vast commentary describing the source base, method of research, presentation of the results, and the indexes of settlements and physiographic names.
