28th March 2018 - map update
1 New mapping material from the Library of Congress.

1. Rather detailed German military brochures grouped under the "H.Dv.g 40" (Heeres-Druckvorschriften, geheim), and a full title of "Mil-geo Einzelangaben für die Trupperführung zum Einheitsblatt...". The publications contain military and geographic description of terrain for each of the German, joint edition, 1:100,000 maps, called "Einheitsblatt" (or "Grossblatt") for the purpose of "troop-leading". Each booklet also includes a set of 1 - 3 maps. The main sheet is the "enhanced" edition of the Einheitsblatt, accompanied by other maps, usually printed on the reverse. They provide an overview of local power grid, gas, soil types, telecom networks and town plans, often simplified).
We managed to scan several dozen maps and some 12 publications, most of which cover the area of what was, prior to WW2, eastern provinces of 3rd Reich, and what is now western Poland. Because processing multi-scan publications takes much longer than maps, we have made available, for now, all map sheets (other maps for the given sheets are available as their attachments). We have also processed, as a pdf file (75 Mb), a sample mil-geo description of sheet 30a (Einheitsblatt 30a, H.Dv.g 40/30a) from the area of (pre-WW2) "Ostpreussen" i.e.Rastenburg - Ltzen - Arys, currently Kętrzyn - Giżycko - Orzysz. By the next few months we will have processed publications for the Einheitsblatt sheet No 53, 54, 55, 66, 67, 71, 78, 79, 142, 149 and 156. Mil-geo description of other sheets, made available today, can be expected no sooner than next year.

2. Also, from the collection of the Library of Congress, several town plans, unfortunately, some are photostat copies, so quality isn't brilliant, but as they cover smaller towns, they provide useful information.

3. We have added one Soviet town plan of Kiev, courtesy of Mr Ryszard Hubisz. Although it is called "schematic" (simplified), it is, in fact, a well-drawn and reasonably detailed plan, in Ukrainian, made around 1935. Its reliability (accuracy) can be verified against German, WW2 town plans of Kiev from 1941 and 1943 available here.

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

Hello Marek. I am referring to the Ossada settlements created by Marshal Pilsudski in the Kresy after the 1920 Polish-Soviet war. I am hoping that there exists a map showing the location of these Ossa

"Ossadas" is a very generic name (settlements), likewise "Kresy" which stretch from current Lithuania down to Ukraine. Anything more specific?

Dzień dobry Marek. Czy Archive mają żadnych mapy przedstawiając
e lokalizację Ossadas w staropolskim Kressy (sprzed wojny)? Dziękuję, Julian.
