Project Linework

Project Linework is a library of handcrafted vector linework for cartography, each one designed in a unique aesthetic style. It’s meant to break us away from the default line paths that we so often rely on by providing some more visually-interesting alternatives. Download the current files at projectlinework.org. Learn more about Mr. Huffman's inspiration.

Linework

What's included?

Most sets include all of the following:

  • Illustrator: projected to best fit extent, PDF & Inkscape compatible
  • SVGs: for web and other vector needs
  • Shapefiles: great with QGIS or ArcGIS
  • GeoJSON: Add to your webmaps

Geographic Data (not included in all sets) typically consists of admin0 poly/Line, admin1 poly/Line, streams, lakes, and waterbodies

Website

The projectlinework.org website is hosted here as well - it's a jekyll website and can be run locally with jekyll serve --watch.

Develop

You can convert all shapefiles of a particular linework set by using convert.sh <linework_set_name>. In order to convert/update a linework set this way we assume:

  1. you have a /shp file directory set up in your new linework set with properly formatted Shapefiles
  2. you have installed gdal on your computer to use ogr2ogr to convert shapefiles to GeoJSON
  3. you have installed topojson globally on your computer to convert GeoJSON files to TopoJSON.

Deployment is only possible if you have Amazon s3 keys provided to you by the Project Linework maintainers.
