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?

shows country borders with no text.

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: ... 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 :)
