Hey Guys,
Anyone out there know how I can split a Map of America showing states into the individual states. What I want is the map of all the states in America and I want to get that from the American map. Is there a way I could use photoshop or corel draw or some other software to get the outline maps of the states from the National Map itself??? Help or link to articles concerning this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...

They are save able and printable too.

Yeah but it hasnt got state maps for other countries. What if I wanted to do the same for an African country??? I think it'd be better if I can learn how to do the splitting myself instead of using already-split maps. Thanks, though, for your quick help...

Sorry, you did ask about "America" not other countries.

Map are usually copy written product. Which means you'd probably have to purchase them for the use you want.

I suggest you view "google earth" free to see if you can find what you need.
