Several new town plans, mainly of Lwow (Lemberg) and Wilno (Vilnius) have been added. More are on the way (within a few days). Or not.
22 December 2009 - update
Christmas break is nearly here. It can be stressful, so we might have a quick relief available: new town plans, other Central European Maps and a few German maps. There might be more, if not by tomorrow, then by the New Year.
3 December 2009 - update
This is a long-overdue update: we have added new 25K, 100K, 300K maps (WIG), a few new German maps and quite a few new and interesting items to the "Literature" page. We still lag behind with maps already scanned but still not added to the site, we'll try our best to wrap them round for Christmas.
1 September 2009 - 70th anniversary of WW2
A reminder, so that we might, just might, draw some lessons (if people ever do).
We would also like to apologize very much for the defacing of the front page (www.mapywig.org), this is being dealt with.
22/08/2009 - news update
1. The 1:25,000 Messtischblatt maps mentioned before have been (almost all by now) restored.
2. We are adding some 350 + new maps on our site soon, to be finished probably by the end of August:
First batch available: 42 sheets of Karte des westlichen Russlands, dated approx. 1914 - 1917. (link to the left (German maps).
Second batch available: approx 50 of the very early (1920 - 1922) editions of WIG maps, most of them somewhat crude copies of Russian 1:84,000 maps, but they cover very interesting areas. Please note that the Russian sheets were cut differently to the later WIG maps, therefore the corresponding equivalent of Pas... Slup is only approximate.
Third batch available: 8 "other" WIG maps - see link to the left.
3. We will have some very interesting cartographic materials, but it will take a little longer to process, perhaps a few months.
7.10.2009 - Problems with Mapster
As of yesterday German 1:25 000 scale maps (Messtischblatt) from Archiwum
Map Zachodniej Polski, which can be accessed via Mapster alongside other
maps, have been unavailable. This is may be due to temporary server failure
or something more serious. At worst it means that the maps will
not be - temporarily - available, until our collegues sort it out.
12.05.2009 - update
After the break, some more maps - Allied, German and Austro-Hungarian. In a few days we will add some WIG maps too, unfortunately just a few.
Christmas break is here, what a surprise! We would like to wish you a peaceful time.
And from our users to our users - a few presents, scattered here and there... Enjoy!
02.10.2008 - news
Last time we said that we have be a larger collection of maps to scan by end of September. We did not do this, because the price of scanning is (more or less) the same, as the price of renting a large-format scanner. Additionally, there is a HIGH chance that we will be given access to a LARGE map collection (about 2 - 6 thousand maps) to scan, so it is more... reasonable to rent a scanner. However this will NOT happen very soon. We estimate that we will be able to do it only in February / March or May / June next year. However, the collection is worth waiting for, for example it includes many maps from Eastern Europe, i.e. Soviet Union (German 1:300K and 1:100K maps), and from other places.
So, in the meantime, we will focus on other materials, such as Polish and German cartographic publications from 1930 - 1944 which will be available to download through "Literature".
We will add SOME maps between now and 2009, but you should not expect more than a few.
23/08/2008 - news

Monte Cassino We have approx 150 - 250 new (various types) sheets, they wait in line to be scanned. We will try to do at least half of them by the end of September.
11/07/2008 - news

p.s. red icons = very large files, i.e. 30 - 100 Mb.
