    Hi,

    is there a chance that you will release admin 1 file small scaled including all countries?

    I am struggling for a while to create a small version with open source tools (postgis’ simplify geom etc.). But the results are not really good. I took a look at the small version containing the US – no way for me to create something of this quality. It would be great to have a version with all countries.

    Thank you for this project

    Jan,

    While we don’t plan on doing this for all countries, we have considered for between 10 and 20 countries around the world that have large adm-1 (in population or geographic area). What countries would you add to the list?

    Nathaniel,

    my requirements are pretty specific – I want to create thematic maps about agriculture – therefore my list might not be interesting for others at all. Anyway, my list would be a mixture of top agriculture commodity exporters and countries with the largest arable land area. Something like this (probably a bit too Euro-centric):

    DE|Germany

    US|USA

    NL|Netherlands

    IT|Italy

    FR|France

    GB|United Kingdom

    DK|Denmark

    RU|Russia

    PL|Poland

    ZA|South Africa

    BR|Brazil

    AR|Argentina

    ES|Spain

    UA|Ukraine

    CA|Canada

    CN|China

    AU|Australia

    P.S.:

    I noticed recently that google chart supports admin1 levels now (all countries afaik). But unfortunately as a small png only. That is my problem: google is too small and gadm/naturalearthdata far too big to create a simple svg based website.
