Welcome to GinkgoMaps - a growing archive of freely usable digital maps. The images can be downloaded and used e.g. for webpages, homework, presentations or posters. The graphic files in jpeg format (.jpg, .jpeg) comply with the popular office suites, like Microsoft Office (Word, Powerpoint) and OpenOffice, graphics software (like Adobe Photoshop and GIMP) and incorporated in webpages display in most webbrowsers.
The maps are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution License and are distributed for free and without restrictions. All maps can be used, adapted and redistributed. The only required condition of the license is to cite and link to the GinkgoMaps project.
Currently all maps are rendered using the Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) in a combination with several other unix tools.
