Download Free Land polygons

Polygons for all land areas in the world, ie. continents and islands. Large polygons are split into smaller overlapping chunks that are easier and faster to work with.

 download free mapsThe data has been derived from OpenStreetMap ways tagged with natural=coastline. Ways are assembled into polygons and then split. Some errors in the OSM data are repaired in the process.  Where polygons have been split they overlap slightly to help avoiding rendering artefacts at the seams. This data contains all the detail available in OSM. For small scale maps (small zoom levels) it might be too detailed and therefore slow to use and not well readable. 
Variants
Large polygons are available as complete polygons or split into smaller polygons.
The data is available in WGS84 and Mercator projection.
