24th September 2020 - town plans update
1 We have added several hundred plans from digital libraries in the following categories:
1. Central Europe
2. The Baltics
3. European Russia
4. The Balkans
5. Germany
6. Other (generally, the Mediterranean)
7. WW2 Allied town plans from Western Europe:
- Italy (GSGS 4378 Sardinia, 4379 Sicilia, 4380 Italy)
- France (GSGS 4334 France, GSGS 4381 Corsica) as well as town plans & plans of ports by OSS (Office of Strategic Services, later reformed as CIA)
- Germany (GSGS 4480)
- Austria (GSGS 4483 / AMS M981)
- Yugoslavia, AMS M903 and OSS plans (both WW2 and from 1990s)
- Albania (GSGS 4415) and Greece, GSGS 4457)
8. several sheets of the British map of Malta, 1:2,500 scale (from our own collection)
9. a few missing sheets of the British map of Istanbul and surrounding areas 1:25,000 dated 1944

A few comments: when downloading town plans sourced from digital libraries it is not recommend to rely on resolution information presented in file metadata. Usual, the actual resolution is much higher than declared. Moreover (this applies particularly to digital libraries in Poland), high compression rate used by those libraries means that even high-resolution files can be very poor quality images. Unfortunately, there's no rhyme or reason, i.e. some files from one library can be excellent, while others - from the very same library - are very poor.

And for those disappointed with lack of new (historical) maps... well, take a look at links below:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
The files in the links above can be downloaded, but not from the actual zoomable window but from the file list at the bottom of those pages. Scans are only 300 dpi, but very well scanned.
Other German maps scanned and recently made available by the Berkeley Library (University of California) can be found here. The Library will scan and add new files, but specific dates are unknown, in one word - covid.

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

@JMisiewicz I tried to send an e-mail, but got an auto-response: "The e-mail address you entered couldn't be found" If you want to get in touch, please use e-mail (see left)

I think we need to drill into this... Please check for my e-mail in your inbox! Smile

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.
