    Adobe Illustrator Format Vector Maps

    All our ".Ai" (Adobe Illustrator Format) maps are delivered as layered and fully editable Adobe Illustrator vector format files. 

    You will need Adobe Illustrator (CS3 or later) to open and edit these maps. Our maps are saved in Adobe Illustrator CS3 file format, and are fully compatible with versions CS3, CS4, CS5 & CS6 for either Macintosh or Windows.

    All features on our Illustrator digital maps are fully editable:

    All Map Areas - such as countries, states, counties, etc are closed vector objects so you can add or change the color fills

    All Lines - such as highways and rivers, are fully editable 

    All Text - such as place names, state names, etc are fully editable font text (not outlines) so you can easily change the size, color, style, etc.

    Vector Format - because our maps are vector graphics (not images), they can be scaled to any size and will print at the highest resolution.   

    Layered - All features are in layers, so you can easily turn features on and off: see the Feature/Layer list for each map.

     Compatible - with a wide variety of Adobe products, including any version of Illustrator, Photoshop, AfterEffects, InDesign, Flash, etc.
