Free Mercator, Vector Maps – Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange

Are there any free, vector, mercator projection maps available online? I'm not wanting satellite imagery, but more a stylized map along the lines of this: However, I need it to be vector-based such that I can create sharp tiles for greater levels of zoom. With FlexProjector from B. Jenny, Institute of Geography at the ETH-Z and T. Patterson, US NPS, you can view and export the projected map in shapefile format. A modified mercator prj: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5d/World_map_(Miller_cylindrical_projection,_blank).svg Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for cartographers, geographers and GIS professionals.

I'm not wanting satellite imagery, but more a stylized map along the lines of this: I am not sure of anything that comes in a Mercator projection, but have you checked out the NaturalEarth vector datasets? They come in a Geographic Projection (WGS84 datum) but that can be reprojected using a lot of Open Source (free) GIS Software and exported to a Format that AI can read. I didn't wanna post these as answers, because they relate to Data, and not an actual Map, but there is also the Vector Map Level 0 from NIMA this dataset can require a little more pre-processing but the Natural Earth Dataset might be preferred as it is 'cartographically' designed. from B.
