Countries map

This is the result of a lunchtime project in 2005 while working at ESRI in California, to help me explain to Americans the differences between the UK, GB, England, etc.

It uses data from the free countries, cities, lakes and rivers dataset that comes with ArcGIS. The projection is British National Grid. I used the Maplex label placement extension which these days comes free with ArcInfo to generate and automatically place the labels.
