Adobe Illustrator Vector Maps - Layered & Editable Maps!
Fully Editable Vector Maps:
All our Adobe Illustrator vector format maps are made to be Fully Editable, which means you can: Change all Area Fills (colors, pattern, transparency, etc); Change all Line Specs (color, thickness, pattern, etc); Change all Type Specs (font, size, color, etc)
Features in Layers:
For example highways are in one layer, and rivers in another layer. Simple maps may have only a few layers, while complex maps often have 50+ layers, including different road types in different layers, and cities of different population sizes in different layers.
You can easily select all the features on a Layer and change their appearance, such as changing the city name font or color.
Vector Map Objects for Best Quality:
Each area (country, state, etc) is a vector object you can select individually. Each line (highway, river, street, etc) is a vector object. Each text object is an editable text string (not outlines!).
Best of all - Vector format objects prodce the highest quality output, no matter what size you print. Using our Adobe Illustrator vector format maps, you can be sure that you get the best display output, and the resolution you need.

Maps With True Digital Editing Capabilities
In 1987, when Adobe Illustrator was released, Map Resources was the first to offer professional quality maps that were specially designed for graphic designers.
By using Illustrator's layers palette to organize map layers, Map Resources set the standard for editable vector map graphics. By optimizing other tools in Adobe Illustrator, such as the area objects, fonts, and line width, Map Resources created a collection of editable maps that met the exacting requirements of graphics professionals.
Map Resources maps are created so you can modify the map to suit your project. Here's what you get with every Adobe Illustrator format map from Map Resources:
- All Features are in Layers that you can turn on or off
Map features are saved in layers, which makes it easy to turn features on or off so you get to choose which features to include. Up to 75 layers per map, and every one can be manipulated independently.
To see the list of layers for a map go to the "product info" page for that map, and look in the lower right side of the page content. For example this simple layered world map has only 12 layers, while this poster size layered world map has over 35!
- All Areas are complete objects you can select and modify
Every geographic area (eg countries, states, counties) is a separate object you can select and edit. This makes it easy to highlight specific states, geographic regions, cities, or provinces with color or fill patterns. Or create a custom area by selecting a group of objects and copying to new file.
- All Lines are fully editable
Every line on a map (eg road, boundary, river) can be edited. You can change color, line width, line style. If you want a dashed boundardy, it's simple to create one.
- All Text is fully editable font text (not outlines)
Text is font-based, so it's easy to change the font size and style. You can use your own choice of fonts. You can also add text with your own messaging.
