Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, please see our other maps of Africa.
Yes, this is truly a vector map. You can zoom in as much as you like without affecting the resolution. Note that some of our maps do have raster layers included, and these have a limited resolution. Try out one of our free sample maps to see the maps in action.
The map preview below only shows you a bitmap snapshot of the vector map, and for practical reasons the preview is limited to certain zoom levels.
Yes, the everything you see on the map can be edited and styled differently. You can try out one of our free sample maps to see how the map is structured.
Yes, features on the map are organized into layers which can be hidden or edited individually. You are welcome to try out one of our free sample maps to see typical layers on our map.
If you need to edit the map in Adobe Illustrator and you need access to layers (to turn features on or off by layer, for example), then we suggest the Adobe Illustrator (.ai) format.
If you intend to use the map in Adobe Illustrator, but you do not need layer information, then the PDF file format is perfectly fine. Illustrator can import PDF files, but it does not support PDF layers, so all of the map features will be placed in a single, flat layer. You can still edit the map, it is just that the map features will not be placed into separate layers.
If you want to use the map in some other software (like Inkscape), then the PDF file format is the one for you.
No problem, we can make a map covering a different area for you, quickly and at affordable prices. Please contact us!
