Our push pin PowerPoint maps are a great new addition to our free downloadable templates selection.

powerpoint map of the uk

These are maps of individual countries with separate images of drawing pins. The vector maps include France, Italy, Germany, Holland, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Belgium, Ireland and the UK and more. With these templates you can insert the “pins” into places of interest and then label them as you wish. These can be used in PowerPoint slides, in web pages and blogs, or anywhere else where they may be helpful. At the moment we have maps of most European countries, also we have free editable PowerPoint maps of North America and now editable world maps.

This is what you’ll need to do in order to use these maps in PowerPoint. First download the map file. All the maps are in vector format and consist of a separate outline and fill. When you open the file you will find a page with a map of Europe and a set of ten coloured pins.

You can copy and paste the maps into new slides, change the fill colour and outline colour, resize them and add shadows and other effects. You can also copy and paste the various coloured pins, place them on the maps and and resize them for your needs. Since the maps are a combination of fills and outlines to move them around it is better to group the desired layers first and move and resize them together then ungroup them when you need to adjust individual colours, outlines and fill styles.

We have also provided example files of various effects you could use with the maps and we have separated out some of the most used maps for you already and these come on individual slides.

How we did it.

Here is how we achieved the various effects found in our example files

1.Double lined stroke

example of a PowerPoint map

To achieve the double lined stroke effect in the map above you will need a map with just an outline layer and a map with just a fill layer. Make sure that the fill layer is below the outline layer. On the fill layer select line style and add a line (stroke) of 6pt, then give it a colour different to the fill colour. Adjust the map outline layer so that the line is 2pt and also give that a different colour. You have now created double lined stroke.

2.Image and pattern fills

powerpoint map

You can apply various pattern and even image fills to vector objects in PowerPoint. First with your mouse select the shape you want to fill then select fill colour > fill effects, you can then select pattern or texture. For an image fill in the same menu select picture > select a picture and then navigate to the desired picture on your computer. To created effects on just the line select line color > patterned line and choose a pattern and colour combination, or alternatively select line style > more lines and choose a line style.
With these techniques you can created many varied and interesting effects.

Here are the links to all the files you might need:

Hi, the European maps are fantastic, but when can we expect a world map in the same format? I’m using these for a strategic sales plan.

Any similar editable software application recommendations in the interim?

When I click the link to download as PPT file or “maps of europe.ppt I get a presentation that I cannot save. Is there some other link, or somthing different I can do?

Thank you – if I can get these maps they will be a great help.

Posted by Tracy — 9 Apr @ 9:54 pm


I presume that you can open the presentation in a browser. To save the presentation I would suggest that you right click and select “save target as” to save a copy on your machine – or you should be able to “save as” from your browser.

Posted by admin — 11 Apr @ 5:56 pm

Thank you – I was trying to save after I opened, did not know the trick you recommeded. It worked perfectly. Thank you for both the maps and the advice.

Posted by Tracy — 24 Apr @ 4:20 pm

The maps are such a great help for presentations! But could you upload ones for Asia and for the rest of the world?

Great maps – and useful in a number of situations. Will definitely be back to look through the site when time permits as there appears to be a whole raft of fantastic content.

One minor gripe about the Europe map is that the UK is a single blob as opposed to being made up of the four constituant parts. I guess this is a question for forums – but is it possible to alter the components and split them into sup components for want of a better term.

Again, excellent site – and the maps will be VERY useful

Hi – these maps are amazing and look fantastic, my only quibble is that within your UK and Europe maps you don’t have Ireland as a seperate map (and yet you have Iceland!) Would it be possible to edit these maps so that Ireland can be seperated from the rest of Europe (only within the map of course!!)

Posted by Conor — 30 Aug @ 3:28 pm

This is awesome. I just got a project in today with a very low res map. I was thinking I’d have to recreate it in Illustrator. Another problem is that clients often supply maps with unnecessary detail which distracts from their message. What I like about your maps is that they’re clean and simple. I can use these as base art and add in just the extra amount of info that’s needed. I will definitely bookmark this page as a great resource for map art. Thanks!

Posted by Janet — 30 Aug @ 8:25 pm
