Palestinian Open Maps


Recommended Posts

Thanks for that Mike!


However, being maps of the 1940's, one must remember that there are quite some changes there since 1917-1918,

Many changes indeed. There is a map available from the 1870's.

Here's a list on Palestinian place names and co-ordinates I have located on google earth (you can copy and paste). All spellings are those used in "The Fifty-Second Lowland Division 1914-1918 by Lieutenant-Colonel R R Thonpson M.C. If you notice any errors, please let me know. I'm not certain, that my marker for "Junction Station" is correct.

Thanks Mike


Personally I have always used the old Palestinian survey maps which in general, but not always, match the names of towns and villages used in the 75th Division ref’s. 


Obviously this lacks the on the spot naming of individual features such as hills, trenches etc  and names and and locations of individual wadi’s pre the third battle of Gaza took forever to hunt down.


Be happy to share what I have in that regard if of interest.
