As it says on the title, does anyone know a place I can look at and/or download location data for Nuclear power installations in France? I believe it is well known data, but I cannot find it anywhere.

It's a very innocuous request, based on choosing where to buy a new pad in France and is nothing sinister.

Thanks in advance.

I had this come up recently, but for worldwide sites, and I found this map, which had a link to a google fusion table. You'll have to create the points yourself, but its all there!
