23th March 2021 - map update
nowy Approx. 550 sheets of the Austro-Hungarian 1:75,000 Spezialkarte 1:75 000 map - through the digital library of the National Library of Poland, but from the collection of the Jagiellonian University of Krakow. Unfortunately, the sheets do not plug missing areas in the index sheets, they are high-resolution (600 dpi) versions of the 300 dpi sheets we already have from the same source.

We have had some requests to fill in gaps in the coverage of German 1:25,000 topo maps from the western part of the country. To do that, we used scans from the Canadian McMaster University 600 dpi) as well as the University of Berkeley, California (300 dpi), plus a few dozens of sheets from our own collection (600 dpi). In total, approx. 3,100 sheets which are available via „Topographische Karte / Messtischblatt - Germany”. Some 25 sheets or more from the border area of Holland and France ‘spilled’ over the edge of the known world, because our index sheet does not extend far enough to the west. These sheets are available via map list and marked on the list as ‘empty’ (though they are not). And for the continuous, year-round,,spring cleaning, we have added several sheets of the GSGS 4144 (Germany 1:25 000).
To clarify, we are not working on, or planning to provide full coverage of either original (i.e. German) or Allied (AMS / GSGS) series covering the territory of Germany, given the number of sheets and editions runs into dozens of thousands...
And, while working on the above, it was hard to notice a gap in coverage that is Bavaria (Bayern). Fortunately, courtesy of the University of Berkeley library, we were able to provide approx. 320 sheets of a 1:25,000 map of Bavaria (Topogr. Karte von Bayern w skali 1:25 000), cut along different lines to the regular German Topographische Karte. The sheets from Berkeley are at 300 dpi, plus approx. 25 sheets from our own collection, at 600 dpi. Since we don't have our own index sheet, the maps are available as a list, and the coverage (approx.) can be checked on original German index sheets from 1944 below the list.

Hello: I do Polish Genealogy. I need a topo map of Poland with major cities which I’ve never been able to find on the WEB. It should show post partition Poland with an out line of pre-partition Pola

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?
