Today we started a test-drive to create maps as full vector.
You can try it here: localfocus.nl/vectormaps
With this you can use maps as full vector images for print. Sweet! You should be able to import the images in Illustrator or Inkscape. Custom map styles could also be used. Once we are happy with results, we will integrate this feature in LocalFocus. Comments, questions? Please contact @ehwillems or firstname.lastname@example.org
