Your the 4th person to ask for basically this in the last week.

There is no built in predefined polygons but i think it is a great idea. Surely the data for countries and states/provinces is in the public domain

If we can get access to the data I think it would be great to put in somewhere in a simply format we can plug into our apps. Maybe an xml file and a js function

I want to use the data to do some basic reverse geocoding for the search box, others wanted to draw in boundaries in specific colours.

I'll have a search around as i'm sure the dataset must exist. Anybody already have it

Hi John,

I am also looking for a possibility to define shapes like countries or states which I can color. Did you have any success with your search Or does someone else found something in the mean time

I really need to make a list of the 100 things I'd like to do in VE when I have free time.

No I havn't but that said I was talking to a GIS speacilist that was playing around with map engines, he had the whole world from a free dataset, so it must be availible. There are several issues, firstly its going to be a huge amount of data, secondly there is another thread about the performance limitation of too many polygons / polygons with too many points.

I'll send an email and see what I can find out.
