Michelin maps are frequently updated and specifically designed with travelers in mind. Michelin's cartography, user-friendly format and cross-referencing abilities with its renowned guidebook collections are paramount.The clear, clean and uncluttered style of Michelin maps is compounded with extreme attention to detail covering scenic roads, footpaths, panoramic views, emergency telephones, road widths and more. It's this kind of detail that can, for example, help North American tourists avoid surprises while traveling down narrow roads that are often hundreds of years old. Buildings, monuments, park trails and government offices are highlighted, too. When it comes to ease of use, Michelin has really done its homework. Michelin maps and the patented Michelin fold make it a snap to refold, even with one hand on the wheel. All Michelin atlases are available in spiral format, too.
