24th June 2020 - map update
test Our friends in Lihuania helped us scan a collection of approx. 90 Lithuanian pre-WW2 1:25,000 maps (Lietuvos žemėlapis 1:25 000) dated 1928 - 1940. As we don't have our own index sheet for this map type, the maps are available as a list. You will find two original index sheets, a pre-WW2 Lithuanian one, and a post-WW2 US one - both can be found at the bottom of the abovementioned list.

There are more scans from the State Archive in Poznan, Poland:
- over 40 sheets of the Operational Map of Poland - Mapa Operacyjna WIG - 1:300,000
- 190 sheets of the German Overview Map of Central Europe - Übersichtskarte von Mitteleuropa, 1:300,000
- ok. 130 sheets of the German WW2 reprints and variants of the Detailed Map of Poland 1:25,000 - Mapa Szczegolowa Polski
- approx. 270 original sheets, i.e. Polish editions of the Detailed Map of Poland 1:25,000 - Mapa Szczegolowa Polski

Practially all new sheets of the 1:300,000 and 1:25,000 maps have already been available on the server, however new scans are better quality (better scanner), all at 600 dpi. Additionally, some sheets of the 1:25,000 maps show extra, hand-drawn information, e.g. flooded areas (Hochwasser), related to the major flooding that occured in Poland in spring 1940, after unusually severe winter of 1939/40.

From our own collection,  mapy several 1:50,000 maps of Cyprus, turn of 1960/1970s. The original series is a US, AMS K715 Cyprus, with some overprint by UK's cartographic service. Some basic information on the Akrotiri base can be found in wikipedia, though only available in... Polish.

A larger number of Russian, Soviet and German one-verst maps (1:42,000) from the Library of Congress. They cover three areas, roughly:
- western Russia (within pre-1917 borders), about 400 sheets, covering the current area of central & eastern Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine
- Crimea and the Caucasus, around 500 sheets
- Russia / Soviet Union - a set of about 60 sheets, various, individual sheets from central, European Russia
- approx. 20 sheets of German 1:42,000, dated 1942, also from the area of the Caucasus
- over 90 sheets from the Baltics, some undated, most likely post-1917, by Estonian cartographic services

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