Five of the 8 sheets comprising Dietrich Reimer's Kriegskarte von Deutsch-Südwestafrika In April and August 1987 the map was reprinted as volume 6 of the National Archives of SWA/Namibia Publication series Archaeia .

From the introduction to the Index of Names which accompanies the set of facsimile reprint maps: 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 printed in 8 sheets.
