Austrian Empire Military Maps

Militär-Landesaufnahme und Spezialkarte der österreichisch-ungarische Monarchie

Published by the "Österreich Militärgeographisches Institut" from 1910 to 1937. The scale of each map is 1:75,000 (which is approx. 1 inch = 1.2 miles). These maps are very detailed, even individual houses can be seen. They were filmed by LDS on 142 Microfiche ; (11cm x 15cm) (#6000199 to #6000339). Fiche number 60000199 has a map index. Fiches can be ordered and viewed for a small fee at Mormon Family History Centers around the world.
Reproductions of these maps on paper can be purchased at www.genealogyunlimited.com (Genealogy Unlimited also has 1:200000 scale maps).

The Eötvös Loránd University, Department of Cartography and Geoinformatics in Hungary is providing free downloads of what appears to be scans in color of the above maps. Their website has maps for much of central Europe from as far north as Berlin, to Rome and Istanbul on the south. There is no gazetteer available for these maps but there is an index map page with major placenames marked. Each map was scanned at high resolution so the JPEG image of each map averages 3MB.

Here is the map index page at the university
