22nd January 2022 - map update
1 We have added approx. 940 sheets of the Soviet, post-WW2, 1:25,000 map from Lithuania (600dpi). Because mapster index sheet for 1:25, 000 maps of this type is, for rather obvious reasons, very extensive, it can take quite a long time to open - it appears that Opera and Edge take less time than Firefox. The maps are also available via a less computer-intensive list and they will show up on a map list in mapster search. Where possible, we tried to provide alternative (Polish, German, Latvian and Lithuanian) place-names, however errors can occur, as there are several different place-names with identical name in one language, but different variants in other languages.

A little side note: to search historical maps in mapster by their geographical coordinates (when no larger village is found nearby), you can use a 'hack', i.e. an unofficial mapster search feature. First, you need to find the coordinates of a place, eg. via google maps. When you click anywhere on the map (left-click), a small window pops up at the bottom of the screen. When you click on that windo, the coordinates show up on the left hand side, usually under a photo of the location, if one is available. You should copy the coordinates (CTRL + C) which are presented in UTM format, and they look like the example below:
53.951819, 23.519671
Copy 1st part above, before the comma, i.e. 53.951819,  using (CTRL + C) and then paste it (CTRL + V) into the link below:
http://igrek.amzp.pl/result.php?cmd=pt&lat=XXX&lon=YYY&hideempty=on
- you should replace only XXX (be careful not to copy or delete any characters before or after XXX).
Copy 2nd part above, after the comma, i.e. 23.519671, using (CTRL + C) and then paste (CTRL A+ V) to the very same link, by replacing only YYY.
When the link is complete, mark it with a mouse cursor and copy the whole link przygotowany (CTRL + C) and paste it (CTRL + V) into the main search (web address) window of your web browser (firefod, edge, chrome, opera, etc.)
http://igrek.amzp.pl/result.php?cmd=pt&lat=53.951819&lon=23.519671&hideempty=on
- when you do that, don't forget the 'enter' command, which is the 'Return' key on the right side of the keyboard (the one with an arrow pointing down and right).

That's it! Simple, isn't it? ;)

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
