I'm working on a series of maps for a French-Canadian audience, and I'm wondering if there is any difference between English and French formatting of  degree-minute-second strings.   I know there are differences in regular text, and "1:50,000" becomes "1 : 50 000" in French,  but I can't find any French examples of, eg,  45°30'15".  (Not close to a map library.)

I don't think so. I dug out an IGN map (not Canadian) and it has degree minute and grad marking on different sides of the map.
