Are topographical maps covering the area of Operation Jupiter online anywhere? I know that there were 1:25,000 Commonwealth maps of the area, and I'd assume that there were similarly-scaled German and French maps.

I'm looking for terrain details, not so much movement of units. Of course, if you also know of an overlay map with actual or suspected enemy locations marked on it, that would be tremendous.

Thanks in advance!

This seems to be what you wanted.

Very nice …

I do need flat scans to work on a map, though. Not that I won't be using these!

Let me go further with my praise: those really are incredible.

The weird part is that the topography from the 1943 1:50K maps just doesn't line up with the 1:25K maps! I guess the 1943 note about elevation lines being interpolated was serious …

Brings up an interesting point about a 1942 or 1943 invasion by the WAllies: they would likely have gone ashore with inaccurate detail maps for critical locations!

I've looked at the collection, hut it's useless to me. I need the much finer detail of 25K. 100K flattens out elevations to nothing.
