that is very interesting indeed. I dont suppose you have the other side of the map with the survey details or  a date ?  I have one of the same area BUT it is called KOJA Dere and is the very example I mentioned in an earlier post. I cant get the resolution high enough to read the text. I will see what i can do with it.

The following website shows the above map but allows the user to select a particular grid to view and then enlarges the view and allows it to be saved.
