I'm trying to develop an application in PHP to plot various points in Europe from a database, and serve them dynamically on a map.
I think this should be relatively straightforward when using a map in the cylindrical projection - but I just cannot find one.
I only require country borders, and pretty low level of detail. The smallest section of the map to be displayed at one time is likely to be the UK, and the largest output size is probably around 1280 x 1024px.
Does anyone know of a freely available (or paid, if free isn't an option) vector?
