I remembered a TV series or movie that I watched when I was a kid. It was on DVD, I think. It was animated, and the color scheme was bright. I watched it around 2002-2010.

All I remember is that there are floating islands and ships, and I think there was a war or something. I can remember one scene where there was a ship that crashed on an island in the winter. Another scene that I remember is where a few characters were on an island (some kind of a main island/city), and they were in the library looking at a map.

Does anyone know what this is?

    Welcome to SFF! Can you take a look at this guide and see if there is anything else you can edit in? For example, when did you watch this? What were the predominant colors of the animation? Every little bit of information helps to identify your story. – Arcanist Lupus Jul 6 '18 at 2:32

It could be Dragon Hunters (originally "Chasseurs de dragons" in French). It aired in 2006.

Two guys hunt dragons for money in a funny fantasy world, flying from floating island to floating island. Each new episode was a new contract for a dragon. They were all very different.

Their flying vehicle crashed on a snowy floating island during the 8th episode of the first season, fitting to your memory. You can find this episode here. The crash happens at 04:00 (it's in french, but a US version exists)

A movie adaptation has been realized in 2008. Same universe, but in 3D animation.

Could it be Dragon Flyz (Dragon Flyz Les Guerriers Volants)?
It was a French cartoon where mankind must live in floating cities that were protected by a group of dragon-riding warriors against an evil lord.

Perhaps Skyland? As TVTropes put "Totally not inspired by The Last Exile". "Totally not inspired by" is a Blatant Lie.

It was a cel-shaded CGI series, aired a single season in 2005-2007.
