I know of a few sites that offer map data of popular locations, many cities around the globe, but I haven't found any service which provides vector map data of all locations in a form I can use for design.

Right now when designing an ad with a map, I usually screenshot Google Maps, and if needed, trace that data. But in an environment where low-cost design needs to be done quickly, I'm looking for a viable way of getting that data in vector form quickly (without tracing) at any range (area scope) that I need.

Is there a tool / service for getting vector map data of all mapped locations?

Here's a few:

  • openstreetmap lets you download an svg image. It's buggy though, and you'll get an error message most of the time.
  • bbbike will also let you download svgs
  • mapworks lets you download svgs for european cities
  • Mapworks link results in a 403 (April 2021)
