The islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon lie only a score of
kilometers from the coast of Newfoundland, but they form
an overseas department of France. Triangulation of the
islands was carried out in the early 1950s and linked to
Newfoundland. The Institut Géographique National
(IGN), Paris, published a four-color 1:20,000 scale map in
six sheets in 1955. Following the acquisition of new air
photography in 1985 and survey revision in 1986, these
sheets were superseded by a two-sheet cover in the 1:25,000
scale Série bleue (sheets 4798S and 4799S), published in 1988.
The projection is UTM, International ellipsoid. Contours are
at 5 m intervals with the addition of relief shading, and an overprint of tourist information.
Soviet military topographic mapping of Saint Pierre and Miquelon is available at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (1 sheet, complete coverage, published in 1990);
1:500,000 (1 sheet, complete coverage, published in 1986) and 1:200,000 (3 sheets, complete coverage, published in 1983). These products are available in print, digital raster
and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
