Town and city plans
Update: 30 October 2020

This page will provide links to the old town plans of Poland and other countries, mainly in Central and Eastern Europe. As the number of plans grows fast, and is likely to reach several thousands, we will make them available via Mapster, which helps us maintain the collection up to date.
Please note: all new scans in Mapster will be marked "New" in green for a period of 30 days.

The plans have been divided into:
  • GSGS 4435 Town Plans of Poland - a separate series of plans drawn in 1943 by Polish cartographers, on request from the Geographical Section of the British General Staff. To the best of our knowledge, this series is complete, despite some larger cities, like Gdynia, missing, probably never drawn. In 1944, WIG based in Edinburgh, made one more plan in the same fashion (Town Plan of Kielce), which is, however, not a part of the series, and can be seen in the main town plan collection linked above (Central Europe). For convenience, the Mapster index sheet also includes two plans from the GSGS 4480 Town Plans of Germany series: Breslau and Konigsberg. Town plan of Stettin was probably never made, mentioned in 1944 as "in progress". The index sheet also includes a 2-sheet town plan of Danzig (GSGS 4496).
Other plans:
  • Other plans - all those which we thought might be of interest. Currently - a few plans of North African towns, related to the history of WW2.
Please see list of town plans in Mapster for FULL LIST, including various GSGS and AMS plans of Western Europe, Balkans, etc. (bottom of the page, i.e. CTRL + End)

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?
