Entitled a difficult rise (1750-1791), the first part studies the state of navigation and surveying in France (some comparisons are proposed with Great Britain), from the end of 17th century. Longitude at sea, the references of geodesy and topography, the education of sailors, the first laws concerning the printing and the selling of nautical charts, as hydrographic institution is established (in France), are dealed with strategic and commercial objects, and progress in methods and instruments at the end of old regime, a time of Beautemps-Beaupré's scientific education. Because of him, the d'Entrecasteaux's expedition (first chapter of the second part, entitled the modern hydrography, 1792-1850) is the real laboratory of modern hydrography. His object concerns strategy, as proved by the interest of Great Britain for the papers of the expedition. Hydrographic documentation is useful for colonization as for its publicity... Obviously, this fighting surveying is of great importance during the war, for instance between 1799 and 1815. Such objects require controls of hydrographic productions by the states, as they still exist at the end of the XXth century. At last, the analysis of methods defined by Beautemps-Beaupré is used to study the making of a chart. These are to be transmitted to others hydrographers (engineers or officers), by books and teaching. Yet, if the charts are not used by the sailors, it won't be enough for the propagation of modern hydrography
