Locus Map and IGN – best companions for your French travels
This face-resembling picture of beautifully curved landscape of d’Auvergne volcanoes several kilometres from Clermont Ferrand nicely introduces work of French cartographers from IGN – national institute of geographic and forestry information. Their digital maps well-known from their web Géoportail have been a part of Locus online map portfolio for a few weeks.
IGN maps are the French equivalent of the UK’s Ordnance Survey maps. IGN offers more than 2,000 topographic maps of France at a variety of scales as well as excellent maps of other parts of the world. All have an easy to use key and are beautifully produced. IGN maps can be quite hard to find in France – especially the IGN maps of more rural areas so it’s usually worthwhile to have them subscribed in your mobile before you travel.
Locus Map offers two subscriptions – monthly and annual – for online use of hiking and satellite maps. So visit Locus Store before you enter your TGV train to d’Auvergne…
