The 3rd Military Mapping Survey of Austria-Hungary took place before and during the first years of the first World War, starting in the years 1869 to 1887. Basic sheets are the „Aufnahmeblätter“, scale 1:25.000 or 1:12.500. Other parts are the „Spezialkarte“ 1:75.000. Additionally there are some other sheets of different scales existing (Sonderformate, see Subcategory)

There exist 267 sheets called „Generalkarte von Mitteleuropa“ resulting from this enormous mapping enterprise, covering not only the Monarchy, but the surrounding European territories also, from Berlin to Istanbul, from Nizza to Chernobyl.

The longitude is counted ab Ferro (El Hierro Island), which is about 18° West of Greenwich, and 20° West of Paris. The maps were created by order of the Austrian Ministry of War in 1868. Maps of Bohemia were created between 1877 and 1880. Maps of Moravia and Silesia were created between 1876 and 1878. Maps used the scale 1:25 000.
