21st November 2014 - Mapster update
A few dozen new town plans from Mr Hubisz' collection have been added. Also, courtesy of the Library of Congress, we have received three, very rare, German town plans dated 1939, of  PoznaÅ„, Wilno and Grodno. They are the last three of the town plans included in the "Military-geographic description of Poland" (Militärgeographische Beschreibung von Polen) - a set of materials prepared in July 1939 for the upcoming invasion of Poland (Fall Weiss).

There are other new materials, majority a small-scale Allied (British and American) maps from the Mideaterrenian, Caucaus and Middle East, small-scale German maps (predominantly from Easter Europe), some German railway maps and diagrams, and a joint sheet of Hungarian 1:1 M map dated 1942. Amongst new maps, there is a British sheet dated 1951, related to "Excercie Cassius", covering the area of Central-Western Europe (including the western part of Poland), and another one from the same times, showing AA and radar sites around the area of Leningrad.
Another interesting map is a two-sheet set of 1:25,000 Polish maps covering Lwow and the surrounding area, probably dated from 1919, the time of Polish - Ukrainian fighting for the city. polskiej mapy topograficznej, wydanych przez OddziaÅ‚ Kartograficzny Naczelnego Dowództwa W.P.  opartej na wydaniach austriackich, prawdopodobnie z okresu polsko-ukraiÅ„skich walk o Lwów w 1919 roku, oraz ukraiÅ„ska mapa maÅ‚oskalowa (Mapa Fizyczna Ukrainy i ziem sÄ…siednich), wydana w 1939 r. we Lwowie.
We have also come across a two-sheet set of a French map, or diagram from 1941, with the demarkation line between the German-occupied northern France and the southern part under the Vichy government.

There are some more maps covering out-of-the-usual (for us) areas: 95 joint and 2 single sheets of a German 1:100,000 map of Italy (1943 / 1944), as well as 8 sheets of the same edition with fortifications overprints, so called "Befestigungskarten. We should be able to add, probably in 2015, other maps of Italy, both original, as well as British, Polish and American variants from WW2 (and slightly beyond). As no proper index sheets for the new maps have been added yet, each list of maps above comes with an original, German index sheet (or two) at the very bottom of the list. For the single-sheet edition, you can access it here (Link) and for the joint edition, here (Link No 1) and here (Link No 2). Please note that Link the file for Link No 2 is larger (10 MB) and will take longer to download or display in the browser). Unfortunately we do not have an original index sheet for the fortification variant of this map, but at least two sheets show min-index sheets diplayed on their margins.

Some time ago we scanned and made available a set of German 1:150,000 maps showing the districts of East Prussia around 1830 - 1840. Since the maps look rather attractive, we have scanned them again, this time, at higher resolution (600 dpi) and with much better scanner. All the files have been updated and can be downloaded from the link above.

And, to sum it up, a peculiar Polish propaganda postcard dated 1939.

Hello: I do Polish Genealogy. I need a topo map of Poland with major cities which I’ve never been able to find on the WEB. It should show post partition Poland with an out line of pre-partition Pola

Can I get some guidance on the projection that WIG cartographers used on the 1 to 100,000 maps?
