Top 25 series and Blue series

Topographic survey of France at 1:25,000 is published in two formats.

TOP 25 maps (map numbers ending in "T") cover areas of particular tourist interest. The maps have an overprint highlighting local footpaths, long-distance GR routes and, where appropriate, ski routes. Other tourist information includes campsites, equestrian or canoeing centres, huts, mountain refuges, etc. Map legend is in French and English. Each TOP 25 map covers an area of approximately 28 x 21 km / 17 x 13 miles.

Série Blue maps which cover the rest of France have no special overprint to show way marked hiking routes. Each Série Bleue map covers an area of approximately 20 x 14 km / 12 x 9 miles, with some maps slightly larger.

The Blue Series is evolving and the completely new maps will be published starting in September 2014.

Between 2014 and 2018, IGN renews its entire BLUE SERIES.

New Blue series A new cartography carried out using IGN data bases:
  • Optimum readability
  • Improved geometric accuracy
  • Enriched tourist information

A new map size: twice as large as before:
  • The size of the new BLUE SERIES is equivalent to the TOP 25: the new maps cover a geographical area of 680 km², versus 340 km² in the old partition
  • For most maps (84%), the area covered is the assembly of the former East and West map of the BLUE SERIES. For example: the new map 1920SB is the assembly of the old 1920E and 1920O. The Craenen code will not have the SB in the end.
  • The other maps show a specific area to optimize the number of references in connection with the TOP 25 maps or in the border region
  • The number of references is divided by 2: in 2018, the series will consist of 682 maps, compared to 1316 in the previous partition

A more attractive cover for your shelves
Important design work has been done on the cover to highlight all the advantages of the new BLUE SERIES:
  • Clear display of the new area, so that customers can easily find the map they need
  • HIKING and OUTDOOR ACTIVITY locations are highlighted
  • The legend in 3 languages (French, English and German) is ideal for foreign tourists

    • View the IGN map on his smartphone
