Included in the download are Illustrator and SVG files of the vector map base of London with live paths so you can edit the colours, layers, font, text, roads and other features, and add your own landmarks, routes etc if you want. There are also several ready-to-use JPEGs and PDFs in different colours.

The map of central London covers the area from Paddington in the West to Aldgate in the East, and King’s Cross in the North to Battersea in the South. The Thames, parks, major roads, London Underground stations, DLR and National Rail stations are all plotted. Districts such as Westminster, Soho, Holborn and Knightsbridge are labelled.

The Illustrator file of our central London map uses Illustrator’s Type on a Path tool for road names, which means you have some flexibility in the font size and the text will curve with the shape of the roads. This is a rare feature on professional map bases, and allows for easier scaling of the map. It is possible to scale the text on this map so that it remains legible from A4 up to poster size. You can also use it smaller than A4 if you take off the secondary layers of names, which can be done with a couple of clicks on the Illustrator file.
