When the Herero War broke out in January 1904 the German Schutztruppe found that their maps of the country were inadequate. The General staff in Berlin commissioned the urgent compilation of a map that would provide the most comprehensive information available. The outcome within five weeks was a complete map of the country.The map was reprinted as volume 6 of the National Archives Publication series Archaeia. The first is a map of the entire country ( Namibia) with a lattice overlay dividing the territory into eight parts. The other eight maps are namely Zesfontein, Owambo, Otavi, Windhoek, Rehoboth, Keetmanshoop, Warmbad, Andara.
