12th October 2016 - map update
With permission and great help from the library of the Geography Department, Uniwersytet Łódzki, Poland, we have managed to scan a large number of interesting maps, many of which could not be found elsewhere. The first batch includes WIG maps (1:25,000) scale:
- 197 sheets published by WIG (1930 - 1939) & 132 German sheets published by Reichsamt fuer Landesaufnahme and Kriegskarten und Vermessungsamts (1939 – 1945)
- Two older sheets from 1920s in different numbering system (Obóz Raducz) & Opalenie (Rejon WisÅ‚a), as well as Sheet No 5 (Rejon Pomorze, Miechowo) from the collection of the Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland.

The next larger update to this map series can be expected by mid-2017.

From the same collection a few interesting town plans:
- Posen (including street names on the reverse), Petrikau (Piotrków Trybunalski) & Tomaschow (Tomaszów Mazowiecki) – all of them are German plans dated 1944,
- Karthaus (Kartuzy) – unfortunately only one of the unknown number of very detailed (1:2,500) plan produced by the Hauptvermessungsabteilung XV (Danzig) in 1942.

- We have added another batch of approx. 200 maps to the previously released German 1:25,000 maps from WW1 which come from the Geography Department of the Humboldt University, Berlin. Although the numbering system is different, the maps are based on the same Russian 1:21,000 - 1:84,000 maps. Please note that some sheets come with two editions with the same date, yet with different level of detail - one edition is based on 1:84,00 2-verst map, while the next one based on the 1:42,000 (one-verst) map.

There is also something we overlooked to mention, i.e. at the beginning of September we added a large number of Romanian maps from geo-spacial.org project:
- 1:20 000,
- 1:100 000,
If you are looking for other editions of the 1:100,000 maps, some might be found among WW2 British copies of the same series (GSGS 4417 Romania 1:100,00) from the collection of McMaster University, Canada.

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?
