Available Now or Coming Soon

This is one of a number of collections containing maps, charts and images of battles, campaigns and wars, initially involving the British during the reign of Queen Victoria.   There is also an accompanying series of books detailing the military exploits of the British Army and Navy during the same period. Included in both will be the Crimea, India, Egypt, China, Africa and Afghanistan.

Later collections in this ongoing series will cover the two world wars amongst other conflicts as well as histories of the British Army and Navy.

About These Maps

These maps and plans have been sourced from late-C19th and early-C20th texts about the specific battle, campaign or war or about the area, era or nation(s) involved.

About Matomaton

I've long been fascinated by military history and have gathered together a significant collection of military maps and naval charts that I hope will be of use to other wargamers.

If there's a particular period, war or nation that you would like me to cover in a future collection, please let me know and I'll do my best to make one available.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
