My immediate challenge is borders. I did find a set of European borders at Geocommons, but they are problematic in several respects. They are only available in Shapefile or KML form and I need to be able to import them into Excel to make files in Versamap format. There is a KMLCSV Converter, but it does not appear to work for Geocommons files. And if I got them in Excel I would need to reduce the number of vectors by four-fifths or more to make them compatible with my scale. Finally, I have yet to find any borders for East Asia.
