World Explorer Premium is our seamless and up-to-date world map data product covering the whole world. If you’re looking for street level mapping, then this isn’t the product for you, but if you’re looking for a dataset designed to make maps with authoritative content that’s continuously maintained then look no further.

Particular attention is paid to the way international boundaries and disputed territories are portrayed so that we can provide users with an accurate and impartial view of world political geography. We also focus on the internal administrative structure of each country and the way names are spelt.

Such attention to detail means that World Explorer Premium is the dataset of choice for many high profile international organisations who need access to a world vector map dataset that they can trust to create attractive and accurate maps of anywhere in the world and to their own specification.
