Free Vector World Maps Collection


Free vector world maps can not be found easily as there are only few around.

I needed a world map for a project of mine for showing visitor activities on a map and found very nice ones that I’m pleased to share with you.

World maps are very handy specially with the increasing use of mapping APIs etc..

Here is a collection of free vector world maps that you can use in your projects:

  • Awesome, thank you!

  • Maybe i should add this to the SVG link resource:

  • The UK is missing from the b+w dotted map. I’m devistated

  • @Matthew,

    In the screenshot , yes it is missing but the download page has the “Dotted world map vector V1.1″ which includes U.K.

  • I would like to contribute my small contribution to complete your good list:

    It is an illustration of a map somewhat peculiar in vector format (EPS), meeting in VECTEEZY. Here is the link to download.

    In DEZIGNUS provides us with an image that simulates an old map in vector format, size is 1.8 MB and is in EPS format. In the article Ancient world map in vector, you can make the download.

    This vector map in white and black is Inoue Keisuke, where are good collections of maps in EPS format, with layers, there are also versions in GIF, 100% white with names of countries and areas.

    Who’d’ve thought that the CIA had something to add here. They have d’loadable vector maps of every country on the planet if you need them. For free.

  • Alright, not sure who’s ripping who off here, but the old world map was a free vector download from iStock a bit ago. I’m sure iStock won’t be pleased that it’s claimed to be on someone else’s website. Here’s the link if you’d like to download it:

  • @John,

    Thanks for the info.

    I don’t believe that anybody is ripping iStock. Dezignus must have found the map as free in a website other that iStock and didn’t know it existed on iStock I think

    I’ve updated the links for it.

  • a_trish

    this is awesome! we never seem to have the right map around the office (because the software we use turns them into .psd files) having vector options is soooo much better. thank you! thank you!

  • René

    The one with the selectable countries has at least Indonesia wrong — the big islands all have a different color as if they are different countries. I wouldn’t pick that one.

  • den

    I like it !

  • Cintia

    Thanks for sharing these precious links. The one from Adobe’s page was usefull for me.

  • Very nice maps
    I like the World Map With Country Names

  • great list of vectors.

  • Very nice maps and good articles. I prefer vector maps rather than the rasters one.

  • Mmm free vectors! Thank you for the fantastic collection, it will be put to good use.

  • Brilliant collection, thanks for sharing, these will come in handy for my next web design.

  • Thanks!

  • So these are Free, can I have permision to use them in a marketing Video.

    Some of our work includes


  • Dezignus runs stuff that does not belong to him all the time. I’ve tried to contact him about taking down some Photoshop brushes that are sold through their creator at Renderosity but got no response, and from talking to the creator, apparently, he got the same result. I have to believe he is fully aware of what he is doing and doesn’t care. Beware of anything available for download from that site.

  • nice maps

    I really like the dotted/squared ones

YOUR ASSISTANCE IN THIS RESEACH WILL HELP ME UNDERSTAND THE ORIGIN OF THIS MAP. THE MAP IS IN FRAMED BUT DISCOLORED WITH AGE
