Earth Maps with political boundaries

Post #1by jpummill » 27.01.2006, 20:46

Hi All,

I am looking for Earth Surface Maps with political boundaries. I am looking for two maps in particular. 1) Earth map with United States (State) boundaries, and 2) Earth map with country boundaries.

I have tried Google but can't find something that looks like the standard blue earth map with political overlay.

I have found lot's of political maps but they are usually loaded with text and the color combinations are horrible!

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
jpummill

Sorry, I don't know of any U.S. state borders addon.

Apart from that great borders overlay map, which is also part of my current installation of Celestia as a VT alternative map for earth, you can also find an interesting political map with 2003 international borders and names for the countries, here: http://www.celestiaproject.net/forum/viewtopic ... highlight=

No internal state borders for the USA though. Still, if you can find a decent map on paper or on the internet, and cut and paste it on the aforementioned political map, that would do, I think :)
