I need to download good resolution map of each region (total 30 according to wiki) of Tanzania. The maps should contain major roads, thematic land cover and landmarks.

This map of Tanzania may help to find the areas.

  • Inland waters;
  • Roads;
  • Railroads;
  • Elevation;
  • Land cover;
  • Population.

For example, this is the shapefile of roads:
