I am wanting to create an SVG map of Europe - with country boundaries showing - this map must
be made with a Mercator projection
I need to know the exact longtude on the far left side, and right side of the image, and the latitude at the bottom of the map.
I have been playing around with openstreetmap.org but just can't seem to get any sensible export running that will export the area of the map that I select in the bounding box.
The whole 'mapping' thing seems to go very deep, and I've ended up looking at python scripts and all sorts.
Is there a simple
and preferably free workflow to do this. I am simply wanting to end up with something akin to the attached image (credit to openstreetmap)
but where I know the exact
longtitudes and latitudes as described above.
The level of detail I need in my final SVG file is as shown below:
I am aware I could
use a screen capture to grab the area in the bounding box on openstreetmap, but that image would not be exact to the longitude and latitide measurements that I need.
A link from openstreetmap leads me to https://planet.openstreetmap.org/
- where it appears I can download an XML file or PBP file (presumably of the whole world) but I honestly have no idea what software to use to 'crop out' Europe by exact latitude and longitute coordinates.
