I need to work on a world map that needs to be a Peters Projection. I do not know GIS nor do I have any base creation software. Can someone point me to a site where I could create or download one or possibly send me a base they could produce for me?


Thanks so much!

If you can tell us what file format and size you need, and what you want in terms of content, I'm sure one of us could do you a quick base map.

I would check stock art web sites. But why do you need that?

 

I am of the opinion that the Gall-Peters projection should be banned! (or actually rather - the misunderstood hype around it)

What format do you need it in?

As you looking for a raster jpg or tif or an editable Illustrator or PDF file?

And does it need to be georeferenced?

If you can tell us what file format and size you need, and what you want in terms of content, I'm sure one of us could do you a quick base map.

I would need an ai file (saved as CS4) and have it be about 10" x 8". As far as content, I would just need coast, lakes, and country boundaries. No need to be super detailed in the coast.

 

If anyone can help that would be great! You can reach me at m_swab@hotmail.com.

 

Thanks!

I would need an editable ai file and it does not need to be georeferenced.

Hi Mapper71,

 

Attached is a PDF file that is a CS4 Illustrator file with the extension changed so that I was allowed to upload it. Reversing the process will do the same but CS4 will open it layered anyway.

 

Our website shows the Peters Projection compared to some other World projections. The Peters Projection has its uses BIMHO they are very limited.
