Maptorian Editable vector maps of the world (Royalty-free layered map templates) AI + PDF Fri, 16 Mar 2018 15:32:12 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Maptorian 32 32 133853886 New vector maps in the full version of Maptorian Fri, 16 Mar 2018 15:31:21 +0000 In addition to all the updates that the new version of Maptorian has brought us (I have already commented on it in detail), we must add a whole new collection of vector maps of continents and regions that come to complement the maps of the world.

Here are the maps that make up this new folder of detailed maps, included in the full version of Maptorian:

Africa and Middle East
America vector map
North America (USA high detail) map
Asia vector map
Oceania and Southeast Asia map
Europe vector map
Pacific-focused vector maps of the world Mon, 05 Mar 2018 14:26:01 +0000 In addition to choosing the appropriate geographical projection, designing a map of the world sometimes requires different configurations in terms of continental and ocean masses. For example, the classic map of the world with Africa and Europe at the centre is not very appropriate if one thinks of maps in which the Pacific must be of fundamental importance. That’s why Maptorian vector maps of the world include some vector maps centered on the Pacific Ocean. Here are some of those maps.

Disputed areas layer Mon, 26 Feb 2018 11:28:31 +0000 Although most national borders have maintained their traditional form for a long time, political crises and armed conflicts have shaped various areas in which disputed territories are still located today.

When we design maps in which some of these “hot spots” appear, it is difficult to decide whether to indicate traditional boundaries, or to add those disputed territories as well. To help in this task, the new version of Maptorian (Vector world maps full edition) contains a special layer on this subject.

Africa and Middle East layered vector map Wed, 21 Feb 2018 23:18:11 +0000 When designing detailed maps of countries, large regions or entire continents, vector maps (for Adobe Illustrator or other vector design software) are one of the best tools to consider. Here is, for example, one of the new maps included in the Maptorian full version. It is a vector map of Africa and Middle East, with forty thematic layers, thousands of labels, objects and completely editable details. The following images correspond to various configurations of the layers and objects on that map. With this map of Africa and Middle East (as usual in Maptorian), you can design countless other maps, combining layers and objects to achieve the desired end result, whether for print, web or any other project.

Detailed vector map of Europe Sat, 10 Feb 2018 17:34:58 +0000 The full edition of Maptorian now contains new maps from all continents. Among those maps, of course, a very detailed vector map of Europe (Miller projection) has been added.


In the following images you can see some of the thematic layers of that map, with which you can design maps of countries or regions.

USA vector map (detailed map of the United States) Mon, 05 Feb 2018 18:56:52 +0000 The Maptorian full edition contains several detailed maps from around the world. One of these maps covers the United States, is a map described below (US map for Illustrator: AI format and editable PDF, Miller projection). As in all other vector maps of Maptorian, everything in it can be edited: colors, shapes, labels…

The following describes the various thematic layers and some of the layer combinations from among the many that can be achieved with this map. With this map of the United States you can design simple continental maps for web, or create a very complex poster, or maps of each state at county level… your imagination is the only limit!


It should also be remembered that, as with the rest of Maptorian vector maps, you can use this map for any commercial and/or personal project, according to the license of use.

Main updates of the new release of Maptorian (2018) Thu, 01 Feb 2018 17:22:09 +0000 Since I published the new version of Maptorian a few days ago, I have received several e-mails asking me about the new features.

I have prepared the following list to report changes and improvements, I hope they will be of interest to Maptorian users. And, above all, I want to thank all of them for the confidence they have in my maps, I will improve this edition gradually. Any buyer of the new version (2018), will receive without additional cost access to the new maps that are published. Here is the list of Maptorian 2018 improvements:

  • All maps have been updated and some bugs corrected (e. g. some text labels).
  • The full edition of Maptorian vector maps contains two series of world maps, with interchangeable layers between them (as long as it is the same geographical projection, of course). The first series consists of very detailed maps, especially designed for preparing posters or printed graphics. The other series (“lite edition”) consists of a collection of simpler maps, for creating maps for the web or similar. The two collections are included in the full edition pack. The “lite edition” is also sold separately.
  • Other improved maps are included: Time zones, sea depth, vector topographic maps (Miller projection) adapted to the new detailed maps, as well as new simplified vector maps.
  • Currently, the “scratch maps” are very popular. Such maps usually include compositions based on the flags of the world. Flags are also used on many posters. Therefore, I have created a collection with 195 flags in vector format, which can be used when creating all types of maps.
  • One of the main changes in the vector world maps is the new layer series. Some of the completely new layers are: Renewed physical geography labels, elevation points (detailed Miller mapping), tagged graticules, scale-bar and north arrow, improved marine borders, improved states and regions, national capitals layer and three additional layers per population level, USA state capitals layer, natural park layers (USA map)…
  • New maps of continents and regions: Africa, Middle East, America and USA maps, Asia, Oceania, Europe and polar maps.

To better understand what the new version of Maptorian consists of, I recommend visiting the website where I explain in detail the new maps and layers.

New high detail vector maps of the world – Maptorian 2018 edition Fri, 26 Jan 2018 16:24:41 +0000 One of the main novelties of the new Maptorian edition are its detailed maps of the world in vector format (AI for Adobe Illustrator and PDF in layers, both editable, of course, with more than 40 thematic layers for each type of map, with versions in physical and political maps.). Today I will briefly introduce you to these new detailed maps and, in the next few days, I will do the same with the other new maps of different types that Maptorian integrates in 2018.

Vector world map – Miller

Miller projection. This map is already a classic in Maptorian. It has always been the best-selling of my maps and is now a completely revised map: it has new layers, a complete label review and four versions: physical map, political map, ocean depth map and time zone map.

Miller projection (44 layers) – political and physical maps
Time zones – bathymetry (ocean depth) Miller high detail

Vector world map – Miller Pacific

Miller projection. It basically contains the same layers, labels and details as the classic Miller map version, but now, and after many requests, here is a very detailed map of the entire planet centered on the Pacific Ocean.

Miller Pacific projection – High detail (political and physical maps)

Vector world map – Mercator

Mercator projection. In spite of the criticisms that Mercator’s projection has received throughout history, this type of maps continues to be one of the most widely used. The new version of Maptorian’s Mercator map has been completely revised and is now also available as a physical and political map. Naturally, you can combine the layers you need to create any other type of thematic map.

Mercator high detail maps (political and physical)

Vector world map – Winkel Tripel

Winkel-Tripel projection. Finally, here is another request from many Maptorian users. A classic projection, ideal for creating all types of wall maps. For example, it is usually used in maps that include flags from countries around the world (now Maptorian also includes in its complete edition a collection of vector flags from all over the world).

Custom vector maps Fri, 22 Dec 2017 16:19:00 +0000 Throughout the year 2017, which is coming to an end, I have received numerous commissions to make custom maps, almost all of them were vector maps, but also maps based on images, pictorial maps and others. In my portfolio in Behance I have published a gallery that shows several examples of these maps, in this case made for clients located in Spain. If you need a custom map, feel free to contact me to discuss the details of your project (I’m responding to requests from all over the world). 😉
