I'm new to this SE sub-site, and think that I have a good question, but I'm not sure how to ask it the best. I've read this discussion, but still am not sure.
In many (European) countries, there's some kind of official institution, usually related to surveying, or some publisher, which do provide series of detailed topographic maps covering the whole country (or most of it), suitable for outdoor purposes. Examples are the respective IGNs of France and Spain, the Austrian ÖK50 series, UK's OS maps, Nordeca for Norway, etc. I usually find these rather difficult to find by quick Googling, especially if I don't speak the local language.
Would it be well received to ask one question about these map providers or series in general, per country, starting a "big list" CW self-answer? Or should I rather ask something like "what is a good map provider/series covering country X?" for every X I am intersted in? Or anything else? What about availability information, such as "can be found in larger book stores/outdoor shops", "sold via their website at <...>, no international shipping"?
I couldn't find any questions of this generality here or at TSE; most map question focus on "free online maps" or GPS maps. Or they are primarily requests of the type "what are good trails in region X" with an answer containing "there's a nice map from Y covering all of X". That's why I think my kind of question would be a useful addition.
