Accuracy assessment for the maps in the "Tübinger Atlas des Vorderen Orients" series according to their scale. The numbers indicate the degree of accuracy whereby "TAVO 1" is the smallest scale/most accurate and "TAVO 7" is the largest scale/least accurate.

Between 1975 and 1993, a total of 378 maps on 295 large loose leaf sheets were published in the Tübinger Atlas des Vorderen Orients (Tübingen Atlas of the Near and Middle East, Wiesbaden) series. In 1994, a General Index* was published which is the source for the coordinates used in Pleiades.

The TAVO coordinates designate the Southeast corner of the grid cell in which a place (or 1st letter of an area name) is located on a map. Consequently, the degree of accuracy can differ a lot.

The maps range from a scale of 1:5,000 to 1:73,000,000. Many have inset maps of widely varying scale. To account for this, a weighted accuracy per map (including possible inset maps) was calculated in order to divide the TAVO maps up in 7 clusters.

The TAVO 1 through 7 weighted scale accuracy categories were then defined as follows:

 

  • TAVO 1 ≤ 1:1,500,000 or a gridless detail city map
  • 1:1,500,000 < TAVO 2 ≤ 1:3,000,000
  • 1:3,000,000 < TAVO 3 ≤ 1:6,500,000
  • 1:6,500,000 < TAVO 4 ≤ 1:9,000,000
  • 1:9,000,000 < TAVO 5 ≤ 1:15,000,000
  • 1:15,000,000 < TAVO 6 ≤ 1:24,000,000
  • 1:24,000,000 < TAVO 7
