North-Western France at 1:500,000 from Michelin, providing a useful alternative between the publishers’ coverage of the whole country at 1:1,000,000 and their regional maps at 1:200,000. Coverage in the north starts at Abbeville (so does not include the Channel ports), extends east to include Paris with nearby tourist locations such as Compiègne, Fontainebleau or Disneyland, and extends south to Angoulême and Limoges. Enlargements show in greater detail access to and main routes across Paris with its outer suburbs, Amiens, Angers, Angoulême, Bourges, Brest, Caen, Le Havre, Le Mans, Limoges, Lorient, Nantes, Niort, Orléans, Poitiers, Rennes, Rouen and Tours,
Compared with Michelin’s general coverage of France at 1M, this 500K series shows substantially more names of smaller towns and villages and more local roads, but they do not indicate locations with entries in Michelin’s Green Guides to French regions.
When compared with Michelin’s 200K series, coverage by the 500K maps is less detailed, with fewer locations and local roads, particularly in the built-up areas. Presentation of the road network is also less detailed in indicating details such as road widths, driving distances, steeps gradients, load limits on bridges, etc.
The 500K maps do show toll routes, full and partial interchanges, motorway services and rest areas, and highlight scenic routes. Railway lines are included and symbols indicate a selection of places of interest including boundaries of national and regional parks. Latitude and longitude lines are drawn at 30’ intervals. The index is next to the map. Map legend includes English.
Each title also has a distance/driving times table for the area covered by the map, plus several enlargements showing in greater detail access to and main roads across several towns, each accompanied by a QR code for smart phones.
