From IGN's series covering each of the French adminstrative departments at 1:200 000 comes this Somme map. The map number D80 reflects the official French department number and is the first two digits of all the postcodes within that department.

Road detail is very clear on the map as there are no contour lines or relief shading, the only colouring present is to indicate forested or built up areas. Toll sections, free sections and speed cameras are shown on the motorways and the smaller local roads are classified according to their width and the number of lanes. Intermediate road distances are given on many roads, but not all.

The map also clearly marks out the boundaries of the communes within the department, the index refers to these - also giving an indication of each communes population in thousands of inhabitants.

The legend is in French, English and German, the little blurb about how the index works is only in French but it has pictures for us unilingual philistines.

Gloss Laminate

Gloss laminate makes colours look more vibrant and stand out more, but is quite shiny (reflective). If you’re planning on using a marker of any sort, this is a better choice because it’s easier to clean. Your print will be fully encapsulated (so laminated on both sides) in durable 80 micron laminate and will last you a lot longer than plain paper.

Matte Laminate

Matte laminate has a smooth, non-reflective, very classy looking surface. I wouldn’t say it dulls colours, but it doesn’t make them ‘pop’ (I hate that I just used that word) in the way that gloss does. Matte can be drawn on with pencil (and erased), but is harder to clean if you use markers. Your print will be fully encapsulated (so laminated on both sides) in durable 80 micron laminate and will last you a lot longer than plain paper.

Canvas

Everything looks better on canvas! Something about the texture really makes prints look wonderful. It is quite expensive though. We use a very high quality 340gsm artistic matte canvas. Your canvas print will come rolled with a roughly 50mm white border to allow you to have it stretched or mounted however you wish.
