IGN - Institut Geographique National
IGN is France's equivalent of the UK's Ordnance Survey.
The stated aim of IGN is to produce, maintain and disseminate reference geographic information in France. The latest in a long line of renowned cartographers, IGN has been involved in all cartography-related operations in France and its territories since 1940.
IGN have a vast selection including more than 2,000 maps of France, all available in a variety of scales, as well as some excellent maps of other parts of the world.
All maps produced by IGN come with an easy-to-use key in English, French and German. More recently, the change in data acquisition techniques and a growing diversified demand, has led IGN to develop a set of efficient 3D mapping technologies.
