Dotted world map vector resource

dotted world map vector resource download

Here I present you the dotted world map vector free for download. It comes with three different dot sizes which is fine, medium and large to cater for different purpose and needs. This dotted world map is based on the world map resource from Deviant Art, and I overlay a dotted pattern on top and slowly remove the unwanted dots to form the shape of the world. It took me several days to accomplish this but I think it’s worth it!

I save it in Adobe Illustrator (v10 and above) file format and host it in Mediafire, hope you won’t mind because of the bandwidth concern. Continue read on to download the map!

    Hi jayhan, many thanks for your work.

    But I have a qusetion or maybe 2 ^_^

    When I open your file via Adobe Illustrator CS5, I found that I couldn’t edit any thing with dotted map !!! I found just one size not three as you say also.

    Maybe I need some information from you, my questions are :)

    What is problem with your file, and how I can edit it or find another sizes ?

    Is there any way to lock ai file, I think your ai file is locked, can you please learn me :)

    Best regards,

    • jayhan

      Hi Louay, at your Illustrator, open the Layers panel, click the lock to unlock it. The other two dot size are hidden. Click the eye icon to unhide it.

  • Louay

    Many thanks Jayhan for your reply, before now I don’t use Layers at Illustrator, because that I almost forget that Layers are exsits at Illustrator :)

    For the second time, many thanks for you Jayhan, your work and your reply ^_^

    Hi Jayhan. I am an Information/Interaction architect for IBM and came across your vector map while working on a website re-design for
    I presented your dot map to the team and they loved it so we are using it in the new site. I suppose that it is commercial use but it’s a non-profit website classified as a Corporate Citizenship site. Not sure if you’re familiar with it but I encourage everyone to check it out. Volunteers share their CPU and GPU resources to help various research around the world. Feel free to email with questions or concerns.

  • Wayne

    I believe that this is available with 3 different dot sizes. The download gave me an AI file that contains a single dot size. Where do I find the others?

    • Jayhan Sim

      Hi Wayne, please look at the layer panel. I set the other two dot sizes to be invisible. Just click on the “eye” icon to make it visible.

  • kyw

    thank you!

    Using this Dotted world map i made a world map out of matches. I used the middle-sized dots.

    You can see the result in the youtube link below 😉
    This is the prototype btw. I am planning to make it again but this time with the small-sized dots.
