Deutsches Reich 1:25000 (4 cm Karte)

During II WW part of Poland was transferred to Germany (Deutsches Reich) province East Prussia. Messtischblatts in scale 1:25000 covered territories of Germany till II WW. New maps (new series) were prepared to new annexed territories. Messtischblatts were produced also to annexed territories which were transferred to "old-named" provinces. Like so, we can find Messtischblatts which are covering territories of Lithuania, Belarus and east Poland.

Parallel with Messtischblatts on territories former Poland (which were transferred to Germany /Deutsches Reich) was published set maps in scale 1:25000 "Deutsches Reich 1:25000 (4 cm Karte)".

(Example 3135/4 or 78/4) Parallel maps were named by biggest population place (in accordance whit maps in scale 1:100000) indicating one-quarter by abb. NO, NW, SO, SW (example Birkenmuhle SO). If both maps- German "Karte des Deutschen Reiches" map in scale 1:100000 and Polish map WIG in scale 1:100000 were published, maps from set "Deutsches Reich 1:25000 (4 cm Karte)" has combined name (example Birkenmuhle SO - 78/4 (3135/4).
