It is executed in the manner traditional for the European cartography, yet with Turkish inscriptions using Arabic alphabet.

The article minutely studies stylistic features of the map. There is a table with the list of geographic names found on the map (toponyms and hydronyms): the original Turkish spelling and transcription and their respective identifiable modern names.
