I'm looking for a source (preferably free...or at least cheap) for hi res maps that I can use in a video project. I need to animate a boat along a waterway for a few miles and would like to be able to follow the boat along the path fairly closely so the map needs to be pretty large/hi resolution. Does anyone have any good suggestions?
NASA has free maps if you are looking for satellite maps. It is not easy to find stuff on NASA's site. A vector map will let you zoom in with no loss of quality and you can find them all over. iStockphoto.com is a good place. Hope this helps.
