Any suggestions where to find vector maps? All the ones I have found are somewhat squishy in their placement of islands and the details of coastlines. I have tried geological survey websites plus the general commercial web. I have some older maps I may scan in and trace the vectors myself. How do I determine the projections of these maps?
