Here are some blank maps for colour and label in different languages.

IMPORTANT: Only .svg (vector) and .png (raster) images are to be used for unanimated maps.

SVG format[edit]

SVG is a vector graphics format. SVG has advantages over PNG for creating world maps of arbitrary detail or zoom level, certain editing purposes, saving layers, and rescaling text, curves and lines. SVG is preferred: see Wikipedia:WikiProject_Maps.

PNG format[edit]

PNG is a raster graphics format. PNG has advantages over SVG including smaller filesize (due to less-than-optimal server-side SVG-to-raster conversion), more widely supported and often easier and faster to make simple changes to things such as borders.

World[edit]

Obsolete[edit]

These maps are now deprecated:

  • Image:BlankMap-World-v3.png - Version of v2, but using thin lines between islands owned by the same country so countries can be colored in one click - may be more convenient for converting large amounts of country data to a map.
  • Image:BlankMap-World-v4.png - Version of v2, but it increases the size of other tiny countries as well, for visibility purposes, and uses white borders even for the microstates.
  • Image:BlankMap-World-v7.png - Version of v4 with thin lines to join areas owned by the same country for one-click colouring and with dots for dependencies as well as sovereign territories (merged content from v5 and v6).

Hemisphere maps[edit]

These are azimuthal orthographic projections of the Earth from four sides plus the poles. 726x726 pixels, aliased. XCFs have separate layers for water, land, coastlines, political borders, political borders over water (not shown in PNGs), and latitude & longitude gridlines (not shown in PNGs).

Libre Map Project boundary maps[edit]

Libre Map Project boundary maps - Includes United States boundary maps for all 50 states and territories including state, county, and county subdivision maps in SVG format. All maps released under the BY-SA Creative Commons license.

Blank maps derived from OMC[edit]

This is a web interface, © 1996 - 2004 Martin Weinelt, generating maps using GMT (The Generic Mapping Tools), from public domain vector data. The resulting maps should be in the public domain.

These maps show elevation and main rivers, but no modern boundaries. They are intended for use in archaeological/historical contexts (Kurgan, Ancient Orient, Neolithic Europe, etc.)
