France TOP100 Topographic Maps. 1:100,000. France IGN. France IGN is replacing its famous 1:100,000 series with a new 1:100,000 topographic series called TOP100. This new series, which now has yellow-green covers, offers complete coverage of France in 76 sheets (up from the 74 sheet of the current series). So far 47 new series sheets have been issued, with the remaining 29 sheets to be published in March, 2010. Note that because of the increase from 74 to 76 sheets, the sheet boundaries of the new series are not the same from the current editions. Because of this, there is no direct correlation between the new sheet numbers and the old, so please check the indexes carefully before you order. I have linked both the new index (for sheets numbered 101-176) and the old index (2008, for sheets numbered 1-74). This way, if you are used to using a particular sheet, you can check to see which of the new series you will need to replace it.
Also linked below is an image comparing the same area in the new edition and in the previous edition. This way you can easily see the changes in the series - roads are emphasized, less clutter, GR routes are marked, etc.
