For our ESRI friends that frequent the site - do you have any idea who one could contact for that?

I sent out an enquiry to some colleagues. I'll let you know what I find.

The data guys here at ESRI said there are fields in the ArcWorld data we no longer have rights to distribute, lots of inconsistencies, and it's out of date. Plus they said yours is the first inquiry about this data they've had in years. So there are no plans to make it available again, free/open source or otherwise.

I just wish I could get a license for the old cd-rom! The hydrology is not getting outdated, and I somtimes have a need for something inbetween VMAP0 (dcw) at 1:1 mill and D&M at 1:10 mill...
I'm surprise no one from Avenza jumped in (I should have a rebate for that... Mapdata World is closer to VMap, but definitely in the middle. Its scale should be close to 1:2,000,000 or 1:3,000,000 mill because I think (or thought) that Data and Maps is more 1:15 mil...
It says on Avenza's website that MDW's scale is 1:15,000,000 but in the attachment, I've shown the 3 datasets at 1:3,000,000 and I wouldn't choose a smaller scale than that if I'm using MDW...
I also remember that a couple years ago, I used a dataset from the World Health Organization that was at a larger scale than D&M, but I can't find it. I also had ArcWorld (on a old CD in a box somewhere :S ) but I can't find it. I'll keep searching (but I don't have a lot of hope) and maybe we could ask ESRI's permission to share it with you since it's not available anymore.
