Where to find maps of world countries?
I need (vectorized?) maps of each country

For an internationally-oriented website, I need a world map, regional maps of continents and regions, and a map of almost each country in the world. I don't need a lot of detail - just the outline, major cities, that sort of thing.

I'm thinking that the best thing is probably vectorized maps, so that I can tweak them easily to my needs.

Does anyone know the best place to download/purchase such maps? Thus far, I have only found mapresources [mapresources.com]

Thanks !

That looks like a pretty good resource. Here is another...

We had a similar discussion last November here [webmasterworld.com]. There are quite a few resources listed, I am sure you will find something.

For vector map files, you might also want to look in your local area for any classroom/homeschooling supply stores, and see if they have any vector map clip-art type sets available on CD.

Or look online for "homeschool geography map CD" or something like that...

Not sure if they still sell them but Corel sold clipart CD's that included vectorized maps of countries and regions.

Also, I believe Corel has a clipart site that you can subscribe to as well in order to get access to them.

Many thanks to all thus far! I have already investigated a few dozen sources. I'll post my final listing of good resources when I'm finished comparing! Prices vary incredibly!
