OOO-HG: Free Maps and Icons for Open Office

Nov 07, 2007

Version 2.3 of the French OOO-HG project recently presented a free map collection for Open Office. The 30MB collection, which was released under a Creative Commons license, comprises graphics that Open Office users can easily embed as documents in the gallery of the free office program.

The maps, several hundred all told, can be loaded and modified using Open Office Draw. Besides maps of the world, continents and individual countries, the collection includes a substantial list of cartographic symbols for both topographical and thematic maps, such as your own weather forecasts.

The OOO-HG collection also includes historic maps which can be modified using Open Office.

In addition to this, the OOO-HG team provides numerous thematic maps, including historic maps from Sumerian to modern times, with numerous diagrams and cartograms. The complete gallery is available as a Zip archive with an installation guide on the Web.
