16th October 2015 - map update
New maps available from the Uniwersytet  ÅšlÄ…ski:

- several German 1:25,000 Messtischblatt (Topographische Karte) sheets,
- Russian 1:126,000 maps (3-verst)
- several Russian 1:84,000 maps (2-verst)
- two, very rare Russian 1:21,000 maps (half-verst)
- a few Russian version of an Austro-Hungarian 1:75,000 maps
- several Soviet 1:50,000 maps, dated 1944-45,
- a few Soviet 1:100,000 maps, dated 1944-45
- several German WW2 maps from USSR, scale 1:100 000, dated 1941 - 1942 (Russland 1:100 000), single sheets, double sheets and quadruple sheets
- approx.. 20 sheets of the map Austro-Hungarian 1:25,000 maps
- a few sheets by WIG, same scale, based on the Austrian maps
- one sheet of a 1: 1mln map (Wilno) dated 1928 r, a part of a Map series "International Map of the World 1:1 000 000”
- Another interesting and rare Polish map in 1:25 000, approx. 1920, "Dawidów – Bóbrka",
- A joint edition of 4 sheets, 1:25,000 originally produced by WIG in 1930s: Mikulczyce – Bytom – Gliwice – Chorzów. With no publication date it's hard to confirm if they are an original, pre-WW2 edition, or a temporary re-print for local use done in late 1940s, i.e. after the war.

We have managed to locate and make available for the "literature" section the original of the WIG maps from 1929 „Przepisy podstawowe o sporzadzaniu map…” (core instructions on WIG maps), which provide a descriptive specification sheet for basic WIG map series.
Courtesy of Mr Ryszard Hubisz we have also made available a map and a brochure by a known Polish cartographer, Franciszek Uhorczak, „Skorowidz nazw gromad, miast i miasteczek… woj. lwowskiego, stanislawskiego i tarnopolskiego” (Gazetteer). The gazetteer comes with a large map, which ca be downloaded from Mapster.
We have also added a German brochure dated July 1939 including a set of "drive-through" town plans of Poland („Stadt-Durchfahrten in Polen und Danzig (Skizzen)”

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?
