1:25000
Index sheet of maps in scale 1:25000 (Sheets in blue were published and are in collection)
Department of Military topography started preparing maps in scale 1:25000 in 1924. Maps in scale 1:25000 are measured by trapezium frame. Frames tally with meridians and parallels. Longitude is calculating from Greenwich. Dimensions of frame are 10 min long. and 6 min lat. and maps has dimension 44,5x42,7 cm. (on 55°. parallel). Sheets are numbering in Arabic numbers from west to east and each sheet has name in accordance with biggest populated place. Maps are prepared using Gaus-Kriuger projection in 3° zones. Pivotal meridians are 21°, 24°, 27°. Rectangular lines are driven each 1 kilometer in maps. The first original map in scale 1:25000 was map 655 Varena’s artillery firing (1924-25). Original topographical picture was realized to 19 maps in scale 1:25000 (area about 2151 km2). Other maps were made using recognized Russian old maps (mostly 1:21000 and 1:42000). From 1935 it was operated recognizing by aero camera. 5 maps were recognized using this technique (379 Pernarava, 413 Čekiškė, 444 Vilkija, 523 Veiveriai, 473 Kaunas Š.). Till 1940 it was published 92 maps in scale 1:25000. First maps (1924-25) were published in one colors, later maps were in 3 or 4 colors.

Maps in scale 1:25000 on firing Pabradė prepared and published in 1940 by Military topography department of GS MoD.

All cartographical, geodesic and topographical materials prepared in period of independence of Lithuania (1918-1940) after 1940, when Lithuania was annexed by Soviet Union, were shipped to Soviet Union and were loosed. Not enough materials, publications about final cartographical publications and works of Military topography department of GS MoD were survived.

We are presenting new information about Lithuanian maps in scale 1:25000 which were prepared and published in 1940 and cowered firing Pabradė (from 1923 till 1939 Polish administration). These six maps in scale 1:25000 were prepared and published using Russian half verst maps (1:21000) or maps from set "Russischen karte des Westlichen Grenzgebiets (1:25000), 1914-1917" (these maps were prepared using Russian half verst/one verst maps, so practically no differences). Titles of these maps were also like Russian half verst maps. Lithuanian maps XI-19-J, XI-20-A, XI-20-D, XI-20-E, XI-20-G, XII-20-A covered firing Pabradė (also named Pažeimenė, Švenčionėliai) and part of them - state’s border between Lithuania and Soviet Union (border 1939 X-1940 VI). Names of population places, rivers and lakes were translated into Lithuanian (some names were missed, some not translated (outside Lithuania)), on maps were marked (in blue) boundaries of firing Pabradė and (in blue too, different marking) border between Lithuania and Soviet Union.

Pabradė range

General view of six maps  XI-19-J, XI-20-A, XI-20-D, XI-20-E, XI-20-G, XII-20-A covering firing Pabradė, 1:25000, 1940

It is interesting that content of maps XI-19-J, XI-20-A, XI-20-D, XI-20-E, XI-20-G, XII-20-A covering firing Pabradė is not updated according new cartographical material (available sources: WIG maps 1:100000, 1:25000, RKKA maps). Possible assumptions: in 1940 Department of Military topography hadn't new up-to-date foreign cartographical material (possible: maps XI-19-J, XI-20-A, XI-20-D, XI-20-E, XI-20-G, XII-20-A were made at half field conditions), it was no time to update/recognize old material preparing maps, department had task only show boundary and border of range.
