Map of the historic center of Tunis, known as the "Madina Central." For statistical study of this area it was divided into 52 islands for managing the study. The results of this study contributed to an understanding of the urban form of the ‘Medina Central’ by focusing on an evaluation of its quantitative attributes. These are documented in Chapter 3 of the author’s book Arabic-Islamic Cities: Building and Planning Principles (1986). Note that the demolished area, as indicated in green, is restored to its earlier condition and is based on the map titled: Tunis Medina 1930. This map is part of a series of maps produced by Besim S. Hakim.
