The Depot des Cartes et Plans de la Marine, or Depot de la Marine was the French Hydrographic Office established in 1720 to publish accurate navigation charts for the French Navy. These fine charts are equivalent to the UK Admiralty or the US Coast Survey sea charts and are intended for navigational purposes with a wealth of fascinating detail.
