I had it... now with system reinstall I lost it. I just need a vector world map with cities and towns labeled in english. With this new version of GIS I'm at a loss.

    Which GIS software are you using and which format should the vector map have? – Stefan Sep 27 '18 at 8:04
  • I am now on GIS 3 and was looking for a global vector map ... til_b has given me a great link below that seems to have all the requisites. I just have to figure out labels but the map VMAP0 is the one. Thank you so much Stefan for your reply! – Agent Eggsy Sep 28 '18 at 3:39

Perhaps you are referring to VMAP0, which can be downloaded as shapefiles here: http://gis-lab.info/qa/vmap0-eng.html .

  • Wonderful!!! Thank you so much!!! That is it! I have not managed yet to label the cities and towns (but I'm working on it... I know the data is in the Attribute Table... I just must make it visible somehow). Thank you so much for your time and your link. – Agent Eggsy Sep 28 '18 at 3:36
