The ICA is happy to feature the 4th Map of the Month: “SCAN Littoral® chart of the golfe du Morbihan (Brittany)”
At the 24th International Cartography Conference in Santiago, Chile, the chart won the second jury’s prize in the category “Hydrography or maritime navigational charts”. The jury stated:
Innovative continuous representation of hydrography and topography, as demonstrated in a spectacular part of the French coast.
Publisher’s Description: SCAN Littoral® is a common project between SHOM (the French Navy Hydrographic and Oceanographic Service) and IGN (the French National Geographic Institute). It consists of a seamless merging of SHOM’s nautical charts and IGN’s terrestrial maps.
SCAN Littoral® data can be visualized on Géoportail (www.geoportail.fr) for the Atlantic, the English Channel and the Mediterranean Sea.
SCAN Littoral® is not meant for sailing but it is useful for leisure activities (kayak, …), environmental protection, spatial planning in integrated coastal zone management and civilian security.
