Technical Specifications - COOLMAPS® WORLD VIEWS

COOLMAPS® is a unique collection of Instant Designer World Views using a wide variety of dramatic and special effects. To emphasize the images, each World View has been given a different designer theme, texture, perspective or style. The views of the world give stunning and significantly more dramatic maps and can be quickly loaded into desktop design, publishing, presentation, draw, paint, or image editing programs for the highest quality presentation.


Where previously the cost of a photo stock was expensive or not appropriate for your project, you can now customize and liven up your presentation or artwork with ready to use COOLMAPS® images. The competitive pricing allows use in advertising, promotional material, corporate presentations, multimedia and many other DTP applications.
