    Vector map of the world??

    Howdy,

    Anyone know where I can get a vector map of the world?

    How about a Vector map of the US?

    Or California?



    Nothing too detailed. Just a basic outline of countries would be great.

    All you have to do is:
    1. Get a normal map
    2. Import it into Flash
    3. Go to Modify>Trace bitmap
    4. Change the settings if you want and click ok
    5. Viola! A bitmap made into a vector

    its easy find a photo of what you want, put it in illustrator or free hand and use the path tool to trace round the photo.

    sense: Why does that site say "thank you for your purchase"?

    if you're linking to a page you should have paid for to reach then you're breaking the rules of this forum and you should remove the link sharpish.

    Thanks sense!! That was exactly what I was looking for.

    I went ahead and paid for them. I didnt necessarily need it for free.

    http://bjdesign.com/USAdetails.html This is the legit link.

    oops sorry, never really noticed that 'thank you' message before.
    bumped into it by coincidence. the lack of protection is their deal.

    i'll keep it from the boards from now on.

    have to agree, it is a pretty dumb way to run a pay service, it's quite easy to add at least a secure password to the page... they are making it too easy.

    thanks for paying juxt
