A Map of the World in EPS Vector Format

Alejandro Polanco Masa's map of the world

Alejandro Polanco Masa, author of La Cartoteca (which in my view is one of the best map blogs out there, despite the fact that he writes in Spanish and I can barely understand it), has announced a personal project: because, he says, graphic designers have trouble dealing with shapefiles and GIS software, he’s put together a world map in EPS vector file format, with various geographic features separated by layers. He’s done it as Robinson projection, which is fine for world maps, but I’m not so sure it’s a good idea for regional maps unless it’s close to the central meridian.
