description of test area
The prefecture of Achaia belongs to the greater geographical district of Peloponnese and it borders with Corinth in the east, with Arcadia in the south, with Elia in the west as well as with the Gulf of Corinth and the gulf of Patra in the north. Achaia has approximately 300.000 inhabitants. The Prefecture of Achaia, with an area of 3.274 km², is characterized by wide contrasts in its terrain. The greater part (around 60%) consists of mountains, with relatively small rivers (Vouraikos, Glavkos, Selinountas, Peiros) running between them down to the Gulfs of Patras and of Corinthos. The economic life of the prefecture, and the Region as a whole, is centred in the port city of Patras.
