    Question free vector map

    Where can I find a free downloadable vector map of a nation, or country, or region that I could them redesign in Illustrator CS3 as a map where I can create my own place names?

    Google is your friend. I Googled "vector map of us" and got this map straight off.

    Actually this page is better:
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.

    Please make an effort to tag all threads. This will greatly enhance the usability of the forums.

    Find me on Google+

    I had good luck with these guys back when they were called Cartesia. A long time ago, I used their world map, altering it to build a geopolitical world map for Shadowrun.

    Do you need a specific country? Or will just any exmple do?

    I can look around, there is free GIS stuff on this, which should be able to get into AI.

    You do know you can use the autotrace function in illustrator to turn any raster image into a vector image? I suggest the fastest way is to find either a raster silhouette of the country (of which there are loads on the net) or failing that start with a non-silhouette and make one using a raster editor like Gimp.

    Also check out vector magic on line, which has a better autotrace function than illustrator and which will make illustrator vector files online for you.

    Not quite as nice as the link I posted before, but these are free, as requested.

    Thanks to Smashing Magazine for the find.
