Hi all,

 

One of my favourite projections for thematic global maps is the Wagner VII projection, this projection is equal-area, but still preserves the shapes of countries and continents reasonably well.

 

Now I have taken the entire (almost) Natural Earth 2.0 vector database and projected it (using Global Mapper) and then cleaned up and edited the data.

 

The data is all published for immediate download under a public domain license, on github!

Why would you want to do that? (curious!)
