When it comes to naming geographic features we tend to follow the standards set in our source data, which in turn has been vetted by a team of international volunteers, using authorative sources.
When in doubt, we consult others in our field. Ultimately we want to follow the internationally accepted geographic names as much as possible.
Yes. When mapping the world, One Stop Map makes use of free and open data sources available on the web. The sources are of high quality and the result of many volunteers, including us.
Our Layer Names are self-explanatory. If, however, you need more information about these layers, don't hesitate to contact us.
Printable maps do not contain layers.
Yes, of course. Just contact us with your enquiries and we will get in touch with you shortly with a non-commital offer.
Printable Maps | Vector Maps
We offer digital maps in two options: printable and editable vector format.
Each of these options has its own characteristics, and they come in several file formats.
Find out more in detail below.
High-quality JPEG and non-layered PDF.
With a high-quality JPEG and non-layered PDF you can be sure to always get the sharpest prints possible, no matter what size you need. Use our printable maps in print design, in your new book, as a wall map in the classroom, and much more.
6000 pixels wide
|Pixels||Conversion to 300 dpi|
|6000 px||1.66 feet (300 dpi)|
|6000 px||20 inch|
|6000 px||0.508 meter (300 dpi)|

Scale to any size you want without losing quality.
This PDF is a vector file. You can scale it to any size you want without losing quality. Editing this PDF is possible though limited due to the nature of the file: no layers and text is outlined.
You can open this PDF in Adobe Illustrator and select/edit all objects. But if you need to make lots of edits it is probably better to go for the layered vector option.
Scaling a non-layered PDF with a ‘Shaded Relief’ (bitmap/photo layer) is limited to the quality of the relief: 6000 px wide.
Adobe Illustrator AI, EPS and PDF.
Stay in full control while editing a map.
Layers make it easy to navigate the maps. All objects, where applicable, have names. It is easy to select a particular country, city and much more. Just click on the object with the appropriate name and you are done.
Vector Maps are perfect when you need to zoom in or scale. They stay crisp and clear at any size.
All objects are selectable. Give them your colors, stroke, special effects and much more. Text is real text. You are only limited by the graphic software you use. We recommend Adobe Illustrator.
Upon purchase of a vector map, you get following file formats: Adobe Illustrator CS3 AI, Adobe Illustrator CS3 EPS, Adobe PDF layered, Adobe PDF non layered and JPEG XL (6000px wide @300dpi). You can always contact us if you need another file format. We are glad if we can help you out..
