The AUSTRIAN ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY, Sundial Working Group, published early Sept. 2006 the

The chapters of the Catalogue are

  • Descriptcion of all documented stationary sundials in Austria
  • A great number of reproductions with 16 pages in colour print
  • Alphabetic index of localities
  • Register of Austrian museums and collections with portable sundials 

Additionally, a CD ROM is enclosed offering access to more than 3,000 photographs of Austrian sundials. The specific (Windows-) software created for this CD allows for searching systematically for each individual sundial or category of sundials. Furthermore, this CD includes all "Rundschreiben", the circulars dispatched by Austrian Sundial Working Group from 1990 to 2005 in pdf-format, all of them with full text search option.
