World maps have many uses in design. Thus, every designer should have a collection of quality maps he can use in his projects. Five years ago, finding quality but free maps was really difficult. In fact, here at Best Design Options, we were able to round up only 15 free resources at that time (See our post here: 15 Sets of Free Vector World Maps). As an update to that previous post, we decided to search the web once again and pick a total of 32 high-quality world maps in various presentations, colors and perspectives. These maps are useful for creating infographics, backgrounds for your websites, posters, among others. Since these are in vector format, you can easily tweak each file to suit your specific needs. The files that you may download are either in Adobe Illustrator format (.ai), EPS or SVG. So what are you waiting for? Download these free maps while they are still available.

This is EXCELLENT Thank you, However I was not able to download them as I am in controlled environment but seriously amazing collection.. Hello, Thank you for this effort, yet the sad thing about those maps, that neither of them is accurate in terms of continent sizes neither countries borders, if you look close to the countries borders you will find that all of them are drawn using a low resolution basis, i.e. one cannot retrieve an accurate one. Does anybody know where to find a decent world map vector? Hi, these vector maps are for creating backgrounds and infographics, which in most cases, you really do not need them to be accurate in terms of borders and shapes and sizes. I guess the maps on this site will suit your requirements: https://www.eduplace.com/ss/maps/ Source.
