French Raster Map
The French Raster Map is a part of the dynamic, zoomable maps in windPRO. The raster maps were released by the Institut National de l’Information Geographique et Forestiére (IGN) as a part of their France Raster dataset. The dynamic map service in windPRO holds this map in various scales of from 1:100000 to 1:8000000. Coverage is the European part of France (Metropolian France).
- The map was derived from source data accessed in May-June 2019.
