13th September 2015 - map update
We are very grateful for the permission and fantastic support we received over this summer from the staff at the Geoscience Faculty of the  Uniwersyt Śląski with scanning a large number of historical maps in their collection. It is going to take some time to process all the material, so we will release it in batches, as soon as new maps and plans become available. For now:
- approx. 40 new town plans, including showing the town of Cieszyn on the Polish-Czech border. Other plans can be found in the following sub-categories:
Town plans of central Europe
Town plans of GOP (Upper Silesian Industrial Region)
Other plans (Strasbourg in France)

- Several WIG 1:25,000, maps, both Polish and German editions
- Several German 1:100,000, joint editions, so-called Grossblatt / Einheitsblatt), particularly interesting a Mil.-Geo edition of Grossblatt Nr 386 Łuck from June 1944.
- several sheets of the German 1:300 000 (Ãœbersichtskarte von Mitteleuropa, Osteuropa) across the whole continent

Please note: most maps have been scanned at 600 dpi, some files, particularly large-format sheets such as Grossblatt editions, might be up to 100 Mb.

A technical issue: we are aware of a problem with our website en-coding, which now defaults to ISO-8859-1. The effect, in plain English, is that some characters are replaced with illegible garbage which makes it hard or impossible to read some portions of the text. We are working to fix this issue.

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?
