Mappery For the love of maps


As I get one year wiser, I want to share something from my past. I used to live in Toulouse, in the southwest part of France. Property development is huge there, but sometimes, in the middle of the new neighbourhood, we keep remains of the past. The map in Montaudran shows the former starting point of the postal service l’aéropostale. The short part of the runway is preserved during this ongoing Uban renewal.

The area will host the Aeroposace campus, which will be the future base of the Galileo satellite navigation system.

Below is a picture of the runway from Wikipedia:

And the next one taken in 2023
