Consultancy and expertise in France and abroad

Transmanche has been providing consulting services and expert appraisals for the development of inland waterways and their uses since 1993. The qualifications of the founder, his team of collaborators and external partners mean that the company can undertake multidisciplinary studies covering either complete waterway networks (e.g. the Canal des Deux Mers, the rivers Lot and Baïse, the cross-border Franco-Belgian waterway network, the Rhône-Saône basin) or specific waterway sites such as boat harbours or urban sites enhanced by inland waterways.

The company being located in South-East France, most consulting assignments are conducted within the 8500km French waterway network, but the expert David Edwards-May and his team also work throughout Europe on Interreg or other EU-funded projects on inland waterways.

The company is currently seeking to expand its network of experts/partners in order to improve the supply of information in other parts of the world. The choice – unusual for a commercial company – to develop its activity in this single field is motivated by our conviction that sustainable development imposes the maximum use of inland navigation, the most environment-friendly transport mode, not only on rivers that are navigable in their natural state, but also on canalised rivers and the canals that link them, to form integrated networks.

About us

Company portrait

Founded in 1993* by waterways specialist David Edwards-May, Euromapping has become, in 18 years, one of the leading European consultancies in its field.
The company has also established a worldwide reputation as publisher of high-quality planning maps and works of reference, which may be purchased on this site. The 3rd edition of the European Waterways Map and Directory was elaborated with cartographers Maud Gaudin (seen here on assignment at Braunston, UK), and Sylvain Blanchard (here on assignment in Tournus).
Aware of the rapidly evolving requirements of clients, from large public organisations to members of the general public interested in waterways and the potential they offer for many activities, Euromapping continues to develop the sister site as a compact, bilingual information portal.
Studies and expert appraisals led by David Edwards-May, expert in this field for 27 years, contribute to enhancement of the various functions of inland waterways: transport, tourism, recreation and urban regeneration.
Restoration of the river Lot navigation, listing of the Canal du Midi as a UNESCO World Heritage site, restoration of the Canal de Roubaix ( and organisation of the World Canals Conference in Serbia in 2009 owe a lot to the work conducted over the years by this ‘pole of excellence’.
The company makes this experience and know-how available to clients and consulting groups for development projects on or around inland waterways and their heritage sites.
The company’s international reputation is attested by the role of technical coordinator awarded to its expert for various EU programmes (such as ‘Voies d’eau vivantes’ (VEV), which brought together 11 partners from five countries (‘Terra’ programme conducted between 1998 and 2002), and Blue Links.
