French cartography in Africa, both in the furtherance of topographical coverage and in "geographic" or "topical" cartography, has since the end of the war been particularly noteworthy. Local additions to this rich documentation have consisted of the planning and more or less partial compilation of atlases, whether or not they come under the category of national atlases recommended by the competent committee of the International Geographic Union. Although still incomplete these experiments nevertheless open up interesting prospects for the future.
