Are the ATS and ASLComp maps for the various equivalent modules the same but just different rules and counters?

I am looking to get the Omaha East and West Monster map sets and the ATS version is significantly cheaper to purchase. Can I get the ATS version for my ASLComp play? I have the ASLComp Berlin Monster maps and it is a real treat to play on. I would like to do the same for Omaha.

I believe they are the same maps and have thought of doing the same!

I think all ATS are larger hexed maps since their counters are bigger than ASL.

When I was with CH, the maps were designed to fit ATS counters, but doubled for use with ASL counters. We just got the added benefit of larger-than-needed hexes. I'd be surprised if CH has changed that process in recent years.

I bought the ATS version of Nordic Twilight a couple of years ago as i wanted the map for ASL. The map is exactly the same with height levels shown on the map as +10,+20,+30 etc rather than 1,2 and 3. Obviously the scenario cards cant be easily replicated for ASL.

Maps supplied with releases for the same topic are identical across 3 systems, ASL, ATS, and now BRL1192. I prefer playing on the Monster or Deluxe scale maps however. Ray will sell you standard, monster, deluxe, winter, and planning versions of the same map!
