Maps anybody

  Does anybody know anything about digital maps?

  I would like an outline map of the world - just a list of vectors.

  Also, can anybody know the answers to the following questions?

	- what are the most common formats for digital maps?
	- where can I obtain detailed free world/regional maps?
	- where are the formats specified
	- is there any Erlang code to parse/transform/plot map data?

  Why    do   I    want   this?     -   I've    joined    Planet   lab
(http://www.planet-lab.org/) and  soon Erlang  will be running  on all
planet lab nodes - and I'd like graph the performance of the system on
a world map.
