Francois-Antoine-Edouard Keller (December 30, 1803 - April 24, 1874) was a French naval officer and hydrographer active in the mid 19th century. Keller was born in Wissembourg, Alsace. He studied at the École Polytechnique from 1821, afterwards in 1823 joining the Marine national Française. From 1824 to 1826, then again from 1829 to 1838, he surveyed the western coasts of France under Charles-Francois Beautemps-Beaupre (1766 - 1854). He was then sent to the West Indies, where he produced several important charts published between 1842 and 1847. In 1848 he was promoted to an ingénieur hydrographe de 1re classe. He worked extensively on current and meteorological studies. Keller retired from the Navy in 1860 and settled in Paris until his death in 1874.
