Battle Map 1914-1918 The Great war in Flanders
English, French, Deutch and Dutch
This battle map is the first to bring a complete overview of the heritage of the first world war
in Flanders, from Nieuport tot Plugstreet. A new terrain survey, combined with the analysis of
ancient trench maps, results in a precise positioning (in time and space) of front lines, military
operations and inundations.
Over 220 memorials, 170 war grave sites, all publically accessible bunkers and trenches,
memorials and demarcation stones, mine craters, ... are accurately located on the map. The
complementary quadrilingual search-index (with GPS locations!) enables to locate each
battlefield site and to get information on it.
The projection on a present day base map, with museums, tourist information centres, visitor
and documentation centres added, makes this battle map an indispensable instrument for
visiting the battlefield region.
