Analysis of old cartographic sources provides an opportunity to create a retrospective picture of the past. One of these important sources for study is "Map of Gurjstani vilayet" published by Al. Aslanikashvili in 1953, The map (which) was compiled according to the Ottoman document of the 16th century. The document reflects the period when the southern part of South Georgia was part of the Ottoman Empire under the name of the province of Gurjistani Vilayet (Samtskhe-Saatabago). Today, the largest part of this territory is included in Samtskhe-Javakheti region of Georgia, and the rest is outside of Georgia. In different sources, this area is known as South-west Georgia. The research was carried out in a interdisciplinary manner. As a result of the research, the Ottoman notebooks of the XVI-XIX centuries were analysed, based on which a number of objects were identified and their localization (political-administrative / physicalgeographic) was determined. A number of socio-economic indicators of the administrative-territorial units of the Georgian Vilayet (Liva, Nahye) were also analysed: the number and density of the population, the peculiarities of the territorial distribution of the agricultural structure and the main agricultural branches, traces of the presence of the Georgian substratum.
