nowy From the collection of digital National Library of Poland (polona.pl) we have added approx. 500 - 600 sheets of the German 1:100,000 map, so-called „Generalstabskarte” (Karte des Deutschen Reiches), most of the sheets from the area of north-west and south-west Poland. There is nothing particular about individual sheets, other than a few with hand-drawn, planned, local railway lines (Bahnstrecke), a few more with maps with overprinted, new place-names (Namensänderungen), as well as sheet No 421 Löwenberg (Lwówek Śląski), with hand-added, post-WW2 updates, which were later introduced in the Polish, post-WW2 1:100,000 series called “Borowa Góra”.
The update also includes approx. 40 German sheets in the same format and size, produced in 1940 - 1942, as German, colour copies of pre-WW2 WIG 1:100,000 maps. The sheets cover the area of Poland annexed into 3rd Reich in 1939 and also referred to as, “Karte des Deutschen Reiches”. They do not contain any updates, other than some place-names changes into German.

From the same collection, we have added up to 40 other, 1:100,000 German maps, such as
Kreiskarten
Umgebungskarten
Manöverkarten (maps produced for large-scale military manouvers)

Please note: the manouver-maps are large, and scanned at 600 dpi, so indivudal jpg files can reach up to 100 - 120 Mb.

Also, from polona.pl:
2 sheets of a road edition of WIG 1:300,000 map, produced, but abandoned by late 1920s.
approx. 130 sheets of the WIG 1:300,000, so-called operational map, plus approx. 20 sheets published by WIG in Edinburgh, during WW2, as well as a couple of sheets produced by the Home Army secret map unit in occupied Poland (BOM)
around 40 British, WW2 copies of WIG 1:300,000 (Poland 1:300,000, GSGSG 4172), dated 1941 - 1943
approx. 50 sheets of WIG 1:500,000 map of Poland and adjacent countries, both standard, air edition, and a few extra sheets published by WIG in Edinburgh.

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)

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.
