It is obviously published by some sort of German Imperial office.
In the very bottom left, a "Prof. Dr. J. [?] Keßler" (I think? bad resolution) is marked as the author from what I can tell.
It is 1:500000 (with the exception of the set-in of the African coast, which is 1:22,500,000) and was given out by the "Carl Flemming AG" in Berlin and Glogau.
The map shows sinkings from the 1st of Feb, 1917, to the 1st of Feb, 1918.
Red Dots mark the position of sunken ships.
Crossed sabres mark sea battles.
The light blue part shows the "See-Sperrgebiet", the territory actively 'defended' by German submarines, as of the 11th of Jan, 1918.
The thick red lines show the fronts established by the fighting armies on land, as of the 31st of Jan, 1918.
The thick black lines mark the borders at the outbreak of the war.
pink territory is Central Powers territory controlled by the Central Powers.
light green territory is Entente territory controlled by the Entente.
white territory are neutral countries.
Dark Green territory is "enemy territory controlled by the Central Powers", which means Entente territory controlled by the CP.
Dark Red territory is CP territory controlled by the Entente.

    The Name kann also be J.L.Kettler, but I think, the scanner read the point as part of the letter.
