World Digital Map Data - World Regular Map data overview
Derived from the same underlying cartographic database as World Premium but simpler in structure and content, World Regular gives you a seamless and authoritative digital map of the World in vector format, optimized for use in interactive digital mapping applications. The simpler feature coding helps you to
- Easily incorporate World data into your desktop mapping, GIS applications or Internet Mapping systems.
- Create accurate and attractive maps, ideally suited for incorporation into digital applications.
- Combine with your own geo-referenced data to create business or environmental applications.
- Visualize global geography
World Regular matches the high levels of accuracy, political rigor and vertical integrity found in World Premium, while the simpler feature coding and content make it quicker to deploy and easier to use. Data Layers
|AdmA ||Administrative polygon layer ||Polygons representing administrative areas. |
|AdmL ||Administrative linework layer ||Administrative boundaries, mostly to 1st order internal admin divisions. Includes the coastline. |
|AirP ||Airports point layer ||Points representing international and regional airports. |
|ContA ||Contour polygon layer ||Polygons representing height bands for map layer colouring. Height bands in metres. |
|ContL ||Contour linework layer ||Contour lines. Heights are in metres. |
|DrtL ||Drainage text linework layer ||Cartographically-placed arcs showing river names. |
|HtsP ||Heights point layer ||Points representing features with height, e.g. mountain summits, volcanoes. |
|RdsL ||Road linework layer ||Roads, classified by status. |
|RfsL ||Railways linework layer ||Railways and ferry routes. |
|TwnP ||Towns point layer ||Towns, coded by status (administrative capital, national to 4th order) and by their population band. Each town is also attributed with the country and administrative division it falls within, if known. |
|TxtL ||Text linework layer ||Cartographically-placed arcs representing curved map text, e.g. area names, mountain ranges, water features. |
|TxtP ||Text point layer ||Cartographically-placed points representing map text, e.g. area names, mountain ranges, water features. |
|UrbA ||Urban area polygon layer ||Polygons representing urban areas. |
|WatA ||Water polygon layer ||Polygons representing water features, e.g. lakes. |
|WatAL ||Water area linework layer ||Outlines of polygons representing water features, e.g. lakes. |
|WatL ||Water linework layer ||Linear drainage features, e.g. rivers and canals. Glacier ‘form’ lines are included on this layer to enhance the cartographic representation of glaciers. Rivers are classified by tributary (Primary, Secondary, Tertiary, Other) and by closeness to the sea (A, B, C, D with A being at river mouth, D being at river source). Canals, aqueducts, and wadies are classified by importance (A, B or C). |
