Our street map of Manchester is perfect for graphic designers and other professionals who need a detailed editable vector artwork base map of the city of Manchester. Neighbouring Salford and environs are included, giving the flexibility to zoom in and out of different areas. The area of coverage extends north to Collyhurst, east to Gorton, south to Stretford and west to Eccles.

Roads, buildings, rivers, lakes, parks and transport hubs are plotted in detail, ordered into easily edited layers in Adobe Illustrator. Files included in the Manchester street map download bundle include layered Illustrator CC and Illustrator CS versions, SVG and EPS. There are also four styling examples as high-resolution PDFs and JPEGs, as seen in the previews on this page.

Please note, the zoom previews on this web page are limited by the maximum size possible for web preview, but the files included in the download package are fully zoomable and suitable for high-res output. The Illustrator PDFs can be used as they are, or form a starting point for your own customised version.

Another detail and styling example from the Manchester base map – four full-scale Illustrator PDFs with example styles are included in the download bundle. All the street names and other labels are in live, editable fonts for those who want to tailor the map to their own specifications.

Use Adobe Illustrator for the easiest rapid editing of colours and fonts, and for plotting your own locations. With just a few clicks you can change colours and stroke widths for elements such as motorways, A roads, B roads and minor roads. In Illustrator you can also turn off entire layers with a single click, if, for example, you don’t want the building shapes to show.

An SVG file format included in the download package will provide the code needed by developers for advanced programming, and can also be opened in some other vector graphics programs such as Inkscape, although without the layer ordering. Professional cartographers using Avenza MaPublisher software have all the attributes intact for advanced cartography including the ability to change projection.
