21st April 2018 - an update
1
The scans of maps we share are often used in research papers, internet, or exhibitions. Once in a while though, you can come across something... unorthodox, such as this application, found in the Infobox, Gdynia, Poland, by Łukasz Kaczmarek of Pracownia 63A design studio).

New items:
- from the collection of Mr Ryszard Hubisz: a very large town plan of Kiew (this time, of German origin, dated 1943). It is a secret (geheim) variant of the "Sonderausgabe" of the plan we  already have, but the "secret" variant comes with "enhanced" information, showing additional buildings, detailed railway infrastructure, etc.
- from the vast collection of the Library of Congress: approx. 500 sheets of the Soviet 1:25,000 maps dated 1939 - 1940. They are re-scaled and unrevised reprints of earlier, Tsarist maps, both half-versts (1:21,000) and verst (1:42,000) editions from the turn of 19th and 20th century. Exact survey dates can be found in top-left corner and this is how the situation on actual sheets should be dated. The map series covers a large part of the pre-WW2 area of Eastern Poland (so-called "Kresy", borderlands), but also Lithuania, and parts of East Prussia.
Since the set in the Library of Congress is the largest collection of these particular maps we are aware of, we do not expect to be able to fill in the gaps any time soon. That said, within the next two months, we will be able to add a relatively large number of sheet to the German, WW1 set of 1:25,000 maps which cover the same area (and are based on the same original maps) and extend both east and westwards.

The next update can be expected in May.

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.
