30th December 2014 - rollover update
Courtesy of the Geography Department of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin we have been able to fill in some gaps in the map coverage:
- approx. 70 sheets of the German 1:300,000 map (Ãœbersichtskarte von Mitteleuropa) covering the area from France to Kazakhstan.
- several sheets of the German 1:800,000 map and Austro-Hungarian 1:750,000 map
- a few maps from a very rare German series "Deutsche Karte", in 1:50,000 scale: 3 small sheets from 1920s and 5 large-format sheets from 1938.

From the collection of the Library of Congress: a few sheets of a very rare Austro-Hungarian 1:25,000 maps covering extensive fortifications of Brest-Litowsk and surrounding area, and one sheet from a similar series covering the fortifications of Luck, Dubno and Rowno. As the set is currenctly incomplete, we will attempt to acquire the reminder from Austrian sources.

From the collection of a digital library of the University of Wroclaw, Poland some 450 shets of a German 1:25,000 map (Messtischblatt) covering Śląsk (see sheets on list beginning with No 3957 Rädnitz).

A few years ago, courtesy of the Library of the Brigham Young University, Utah, we were able to add several hundred post-WW2 American copies of German Messtischblatt sheets covering East Prussia and, generally, western Poland. We have finally made use of the other, substantial part of the collection. It consists of American, British and French editions of the 1:25,000 map from the territory of present-day Germany. All in all 2550 some 2550 sheets (400 dpi) and some 50 more sheets from our collection (600 dpi).

Other new maps:
- some 100 sheets of the Czechoslovak 1:200,000 map, dated 1919 - 1939
- over 50 German 1:100,000 maps (Karte des deutschen Reiches) dated 1920 - 1942
- an interesting map dated approx. 1941 - 1942, with a rather self-explanatory title: "Kreuzung der Autobahnen Breslau – Moskau und Danzig bei Litzmannstadt”

Further updates can be expected - next year.

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?
