Two new maps were just published on the Gesher Galicia Cadastral Map
Room:

Rudnik Cadastral Map 1853

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/rudnik-1853/

A full-color lithographed cadastral map of the town of Rudnik (Rudnik
nad Sanem, Ridnik, Riduk) on the river San, surveyed and lithographed in
1853. This excerpt of the full map includes the entire northern half, with
the town center and all residential and business buildings; the southern
half of the cadastral area (not shown) includes some tilled and grazing
parcels plus extensive forest land. The well developed town core includes
a large town hall, an estate and ornamental gardens, Jewish and Catholic
cemeteries, a church, canals and water control for a large mill complex.
Extensive redline revisions for a future edition of the map include
clearance and right of way for the future railroad southwest of the
market square.

Kozowa Cadastral Map 1846

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/kozowa-kozova-1846/

A partial, full-color cadastral field sketch (feldskizzen) map of the town
of Kozowa (Kozova, Kosowa, Koseva), >from an initial survey of 1846.
Although only a few sheets of this map have survived for archiving, those
covering the business and residential center are preserved. The sketch is
rough and only a partial fit could be made, but buildings and parcels are
carefully annotated and numbered, including a Jewish section south of
the market square. Also shown on the map are Roman Catholic and
Greek Catholic churches, large estate grounds, as well as a few properties
still marked 'unknown' (unbekannt) at the time of the survey.
