How do I create a map where I can highlight or toggle certain categories or features (Malls, major roads etc.)


  1. Export to vector
  2. Re-edit (lines and shapes)

ADD: I have Illustrator.

The map will be a 2x2 meter print.

Thank you!

Tried Snazzymaps - Great color customizability. But no vector export.

  • You could try something like OpenStreetMap. Find the area you want, and use the Share button to download the SVG, and edit it with a vector image editor like Illustrator (paid software) or Inkscape (free and Open Source).

  • Thanks for the suggestion Billy. Yeah I know OpenStreetMap and I have Illustrator. My problem with OpenStreetMap (for now) is there are many extraneous elements on there. I cant toggle elements on or off and show just the malls :'/ I'm still exploring though. Maybe it can be extensively customized (to be as simple or complicated as wanted) Feb 3 at 19:50

    This just seems like a shopping list question to me.

  • What, Scott? ;'DD Just because you don't know the answer doesn't mean it's a shopping list. It's a detailed list of requirements for my needs. If I don't mention details, someone will ask me for details. So there, details. Feb 4 at 13:05

    Your comment just cements my perception.. this is a shopping list question Read up this could not more clearly be a shopping list question - even if I do know an answer it's irrelevant - it doesn't make the question on-topic.
