Indeed, Louis XV had expressed the will to establish a General Map of France and entrusted this mission to Cassini Thury. The Cassini - because César-François was relayed to his death by his son Jean-Dominique - performed remarkably over nearly 50 years, establishing the first general and particular map of the kingdom and, from a cartographic point of view , the first to rely on a geodesic triangulation. Some provincial states - and Burgundy first - proposed to Cassini to have the maps of their region drawn up, which obviously interested the cartographer. Besides, these particular maps are often superior, in form and substance, to the corresponding plates of the Carte de France; against those who have sometimes been retouched, they are dated documents (Dainville).
