Free world shoreline maps

Here are some world maps I made using this shoreline data over the last 3 weekends. The original data is in the public domain, and so in turn the images are completely free to use for any purpose.

I haven’t yet projected the data (eg. mercator), so don’t consider the sizes accurate. All maps were made in javascript using processing-js. The data is loaded directly from a large json data file and is usable as static content without any server side support.

The code used here is available on github and is totally free to use for any purpose.
