i am very interested in maps,first of all,why can i not find a free map of our own world(i mean not a blurry picture),sites i have seen want money!
gods sake,it`s our (all of us)planet.
i do understand it costs money to make maps,but surley goverments should inform and teach nations.
nothing here pc just pc.

JT is right - excellent link but you are right about the size of the download - no good for those of us still on dial-up!

I'm with you all. Great site. Great tool. But it's a 250mb download. I've just started to download it and my download manager says it'll take about 1hr 25mins [I'm on broadband] so if you're on dial-up it'll take circa 10x this.
