    Default Free to use Raster / Vector / GIS real world data

    Here is a list of sites which has free to use real world data - but please check the site itself to make sure you are aware of all conditions of use and whether it's still free:

    Blank Map - Has world, continent and country maps in EPS, PDF, GIF and PNG formats. A real treasure trove. - Lots of maps but all in .gif format (no vector so far as I can see)

    Education Place - Lots of continental blank maps and some US historical blank maps too.

    Diva - GIS data sets, under a CC licence.

    Natural Earth Data - GIS datasets and some raster shaded relief.

    Shoreline Coastline database
    - GIS database

    Maps for Free - Based on Google Earth

    Please feel free to add to the list!

    I would also recommend OpenStreetMap Data that you can download and you can specify the extent of the area for data extraction. Vector data available in many file format.
