Europe at the Start of the First World War


Canadian Geographic


1:100,000 base maps, digitized by McMaster University and tiled together by Canadian Geographic, originally produced by the British Ordnance Survey. They were created at the beginning of war, 1912-1914.

Shows contour lines.

Maps were not made at a detailed enough scale to be useful other than planning the logistics of things like supply and communication on very large areas.
