Anno 1503/1503 AD – Research Trees

The diagrams below are based on in-game screens. The first line contains the name of the research, which is also often the name of the thing the research produces. The second line gives the Knowledge Point (K) and Gold coin (G) requirement. Where the research requires a University, this is indicated *U*. The third line contains the name of any building that this research makes available, or a short description of what the research does if this is not obvious from its name.
