This demo enables you to navigate in the sections of two historical ordnance maps:

  • Kingdom of Saxony, scale 1:300000, by A. Herrich, 21st edition
  • Kingdom of Bavaria, scale 1:600000, by F. Handtke, 16st edition

Both maps were published by the editor Carl Flemming, Verlag, Buch- und Kunstdruckerei, A.G., in Glogau. The maps do not bear any date. As the two kingdoms existed until the end of World War I, we can assume that the maps were published before 1918.
