    Default Anyone have a decent USA map in DWG format?

    Maybe with some major highways, state lines etc??

    Dunno if this is the right forum or not.

    .dwg format would be awesome.
    Give a man AutoCad, and he'll draw you a floor plan.
    Give a man Revit and he'll build you a house.
    Give Cadmama a couple of drinks and she'll have everyone singing Rockytop!

    I am actually building one right now, But its all linework at the moment. I could post the linework for you if you'd like. If you are using Map 3d '06 or later, then you could query the attributes for the text such as road name, rail name, city name, etc.

    Also, if you do have Map 3d, then this is a good place for U.S. stuff.

    I'm only replying now to remind myself to upload the DWG map I have when I get home.

    Look in the VBA sample folder there's the map dwg in there somewhere and if you load the vba file you can do a few "somewhat" neat things.

    Just because you mentioned "to scale" I'll upload this cool one too.

    It is a "to scale" solar system. Zoom out rather slow for the full effect.
