Hi there,

I'm Chris and I'm sure some of you have seen me float around various forums and sites before, but that's not why7 I'm here.

I need a large, colour geographic map of Europe -- with all the forests and mountains but little political stuff. Can anybody help me.

I'll probably be working it over quite severely in Photoshop or something similar.

Welcome Aboard!

Have you tried Google Earth for your map? You may find something there that you can use.

Just going to move this to the 'map requests' forum....you may have better luck there. Have you checked the NASA site? They have lots of goodies there.

Yeah, search on these forums for Blue Marble. There was a link I posted to a site hosting a higher res version of them than the native NASA site one - which to be fair is pretty high res anyway. The Blue marble is just color terrain, no names or anything on it at all and best of all its public domain.

Here. (http://www.shadedrelief.com/natural/pages/download.html)

Not just for Europe, but for the whole world. And it's very, very large, which is why I didn't link directly to the images, which are found under "Landcover, shaded relief, water; Western Hemisphere (111MB) and Eastern Hemisphere (181.4MB).
