This map is from IGN's new 2009 Top 100 Verte range. The mapping is at a scale of 1:100 000 (1cm=1Km) and is ideal for touring a region by car motorcycle or bicycle, but can also be used by walking enthusiasts. It has a tri-lingual legend with lots of walking, cycling, historical and cultural information, and is made to be as easily understood as possible.
The new Top 100 Verte maps are designed to assist in the user's discovery of the cultural wealth of French regions, and in their pursuit of outdoor leisure activities (walking, cycling or mountain biking), when on holiday or over a weekend.
This new range with green covers are gradually replacing the older Top 100 range which have navy blue covers.
This map comes supplied with a handy distance measuring ruler; specifically printed for use with 1:100 000 scale mapping; when placed onto the map it allows the user to instantly read off point to point distances (as the crow flies) in either miles or kilometers.
