*in the main article, click on the map, this will display a page containing a map with a higher resolution

*just below the map, check for the links identified as ''Other resolutions'' and click on the highest resolution offered

We have recently added a '''great link''' found by Harald Howe: [http://mapire.eu/en/ Mapire - Historic Maps of the Habsburg Empire]. This website offers a wonderful collection of historic maps of the Habsburg Empire (for ex.: military survey of 1763-1787, 1806-1869...) coupled with modern mapping softwares. You can even synchronize views of modern and old maps. A must see!
