These maps cover territory present Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, part of Belarus and Poland, a small part of Ukraine.

For territories, on which German cartographers had no large scale maps (1:42000, 1:84000), the material from Reymanns maps - Special Karte von Mittel Europa in scale 1:200000 - were used. Maps from collection Karte des Westlichen Russlands were issued till 1921. Last releases were updated. Nomenclature names of maps of collection Karte des Westlichen Russlands are made of the Latin letter (for columns lettering), number (for line numbering) and names of the largest settlement.
