title: High Resolution Vector Mapping
---
<p>This map was created using the <a href="/about/kartograph.py/">Kartograph SVG renderer</a>. It shows the East Coast of the United States projected in the <a href="/showcase/projections/#satellite">tilted perspective projection</a> (aka Satellite projection). The rendering took 35 seconds and the resulting SVG has a total size of about 7 megabytes. Labels were added manually in Illustrator.</p>
