The digital cadastral plan of Richelieu

This is the digital cadastral plan of the walled and moated town of Richelieu.  This French national service allows anybody to download detailed maps of their property. Like most digital map work it is is of astonishing accuracy.  I have now paid my 9.50€ and have a full digital survey map of the town within the walls - intramuros as they call it.  And I have succeeded in translating the dxf file version into a working CAD file, such as our office uses all the time.  One can order large paper prints but that is not the prudent and ecomomical way to go!
