I'm having trouble getting a gray basemap of Philadelphia in a vector scalable format using qgis. I've tried using the openstreets basemap plugin, and then taking that to print composer, but that doesn't seem to work as it aught to. I've also uploaded shapefiles of rivers, roads, and railways to try to make my own basemap, which looks nice, but doesn't really work when exported to svg either.
Are there collections of svg basemaps available?
Is there a better way to solve this problem than the ways I attempted?
