Authors note: --acrosscanadatrails 13:22, 29 September 2010 (BST) I created this page to be a starting point for gathering all of the information that is known about these maps. I'm looking to create a map legend for these maps, as there is none present. However, when looking at it, it's easy to see what symbols and features are represented on the map, as cartographic standards are generic.

On a Google Search

It shows a website listing access to a whole lot of old military maps that were available as tiff files at the former website http://www.topomaps.eu (internet archive)

There has been some discussion on the mailing list, as it is uncertain exactly what the copyright is. http://www.mail-archive.com/talk@openstreetmap.org/msg30562.html
