Resource for maps - Poland, Germany, Galicia, Bukovina and more #general

Dear Friends,

For those interested in maps, there is an excellent resource online
that is still growing with the recent addition of a large set of
Austro-Hungarian Empire maps.

Visit the online site of the "Archiwum Map Wojskowego Instytutu
Geograficznego 1919-1939" (Polish Military Geographic Institute).
While the maps >from this institute are >from the period 1919-1939, the
site provides many other maps >from the 1700s onward.

The English language site is here:
http://english.mapywig.org/news.php

Resources include town plan and regional maps of Poland, Russia,
Germany, Galicia, and Bukovina. There are also links to sites with
historical maps of Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania and Russia
<http://maps4u.lt/en/maps.php?cat=62>.

Because of the excellent quality and detail of the maps, the file
sizes are large (ca. 8 - 35 MB each) and may take several minutes to
download, even on a high-speed internet connection.

Thanks go to Vasile CRACIUNESCU for alerting me to the resources on this site.
