Hello Map Lovers,
I love maps and processed a number of World Map projections, U.S. Continental map files and indivual state files for my personal use. The U.S. Continental and state files are composed of lines and polygons for most map layers (boundaries, roads, streams, political units, etc.) I have used this data in my laser and cnc router activities.
A few years ago I made this data available thru a website. Files are SVG format and all data layers are detailed and registered. All revenue was donated to support Public Domain software like Inkscape and QGIS.
There are many map sites that have free data, but typically, it is not highly detailed, or all the map layers are not registered. There are also sites that have similar data to what I have posted, but it is much more expensive. There are also government sites, but then you will have to do all the processing; formatting, projecting and clipping, time consuming work.
I will be removing the links to the E-Commerce download site early next month so these files will no longer be available. If you are interested in this map data, it won’t be available much longer.
Attached are photos of some things I have lasered with this data, most of the “Super Amazing Stuff” was given away, so the attached photos are pretty basic. These files are NOT GlowForge ready files. They are SVG vectors, “raw map data” that allow you great flexibility in designing a World, U.S Continental or state map that meets your specific needs.
