W.I.G. Mapa operacyjna (Operational Map) 1:300,000

The list of sheets is available from this link.

A variant of this map produced by WIG in Edinburgh between 1942 - 1944, can be found in the above collecton.
A British variant of this map series (GSGS 4172), can be found here. We expect to add a large number of scans at the turn of 2020/2021.
The GSGS 4172 was a temporary stop-gap, the series was replaced by a Europe-wide series GSGS 4346 Central Europe / Germany, and, to some extent, complemented by the GSGS 3982 Europe (Air) map series.



Republic of Poland - Administrative Maps
1:300,000 operational maps were also used to produce a Mapa Administracyjna Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej (Administrative Map of the Republic of Poland), published in 1937 by the Wydawnictwo Glownego Urzedu Statystycznego RP (the Publishing House of Central Statistical Office of the Republic of Poland). For the purpose of this map type, the country was divided into 43 sheets, including 5 double sheets. The area covered by the sheets are identical as regular 1:300,000 WIG maps, but sheet numbers do not correspond to the original WIG 1:300,000 map grid. These maps were two-coloured only, i.e. all the information in black, plus borders of administrative areas in red.
ALL sheets of this map type are available (600 dpi) in Mapster
A variant of this map has been produced in Germany towards the end of 1939, called "Gemeindegrenzkarte des ehemaligen polnischen Staates", however the base map used for this map type was the German map Uebersichtskarte von Mitteleuropa. The sheets are available in the general collection of German 1:300,000 maps.
Yet another, limited variant of this map, was produced ca. 1946 by the American Office for Strategic Studies (OSS), and it focused on the new border between communist Poland and Soviet Union.

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.
