Litto 3D : a 3D seamless representation of French coastal areas
The French national program Litto3D was launched in April 2003 as a need for a better management of coastal areas.
It remains the first data set coming from the collaboration of the French National Mapping Agency (IGN) and the Hydrographic and Oceanographic Service of the French Navy (SHOM).
Litto3D builds upon both bathymetric and topographic lidar surveys completed by water depths measurements using multi-beam sounder
From this results an accurate knowledge of the French wholecoastal areas (homeland andultra-peripherals: Guadeloupe, Martinique, Réunion, Guyane, Mayotte and Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon).
The aim of Litto3D® is to produce a seamless bathymetric and topographic database
covering the littoral zone, right now available for Brittany.
