WIG maps other than the main series.
Last update: 31 May 2011
A reprinted and partially
updated Austro-Hungarian (KuK) map, scale 1:200,000, printed by WIG under
old name of IWG - Instytut Wojskowo-Geograficzny. Strictly speaking this
a one-off sheet, but one of many of the same type printed by IWG in very
early 1920s, but we present
it here as we don't have other sheets of this type, other than the
pre-1918 KuK editions on another sub-page, and we're not likely to have
the IWG editions of this map type anyway. (ok 13,5 Mb, 400 dpi / approx.
13.5 Mb, 400 dpi)
Very attractive-looking and interesting map, based on previous German
editions (KdwR), but
in colour. Covers a large area. Warning, large file, approx. 55Mb
MAPA TOPOGRAFICZNA OKOLIC WARSZAWY
A map, probably showing an
artillery firing range in the east of Poland, scale 1:50,000, enlargement
of an 1:100,000 sheet, based
on Karte des westlichen Russlands. 400 dpi. 16.9 Mb.
Mosty - Rozanka - Duze Siolo
Precise sheet title and date unknown (margins trimmed). Very interesting
not only because it shows a training ground, but because it's a mixture of “old”
and “new” type of WIG 1:25 000 maps, including old and new map
symbols. 1:25 000, 25Mb
Poligon Rembertow Another edition of the training area Biedrusko, north
of Poznan. 1:25,000 scale, file size 18.8 Mb, 400dpi OBÓZ ĆWICZEBNY BIEDRUSKO WYD.
1:25,000, a copy of
Austro-Hungarian maps, showing the area currently in the Ukraine (south
of Dnester river). It is not a one-off map, as WIG reproduced often
reproduced earlier Austro-Hungarian maps, but it's the only sheet we
have and the area shows a battlefield from the very early days of
pre-WW2 Poland, so it is worth showing.
A joint sheet from the east of
(pre-WW2) Poland, called an “ANNEX TO THE 10th BOOKLET FOR TACTICAL
MISSIONS” The map covers an area of the
following WIG 1:100,000 maps. approx: bottom half of the
following 2 sheets: P47 S40 Beresteczko, P47 S41 Dubno; full sheets: P48 S40
Brody i P48 S41 Krzemieniec and (approx.) top half of the following 2 sheets:
