Need Lat/Long info for Political boundaries in FS

Recommended Posts

Hi,I'm adding a feature to my program that is under development. Long story short, I need to be able to determine if the aircraft in FS is in a certain country or geographic region.To do that, I need to know the Lat/Long Coordinates that define each country's boundaries.Programming that is easy once I have the info. The hard part is getting the LAT/LON coordinates for national boundaries.I don't have a World Map handy. Does anyone know where, on-line,I can get a map that displays Lat/Lon for all the world's countries?The coords for the national borders don't need to be super accurate, just a ball park will do... ie., define France as one big square with lat/long coords even if it cuts into parts of Germany and Spain a bit.. that's ok. Is it possible to read the info I'm looking for info using a Flightsim Scenery Utility?Is there a Flight Scenery utility that can display a world map with coords?Thanks,Bryan

Maybe this site helps:http://www.maproom.psu.edu/dcw/I allows you to download the data of the borders. You should then be able to calculate in which country you are. I guess when you google around a bit you will be able to find more sources.
