Nosy be official chart

Title: The Nosy Be official chart Nr 5128, drawn after a French 1889 lead line survey

Description: This chart, still in service today, was originally engraved in 1902 on a copper plate and much later transferred onto a modern support and transformed into WGS 84 to make it compatible with GPS navigation systems. Colours and symbols are those in usage in the French Hydrographic Office, until the IHO international standards were implemented.
