For a little hobby project I am looking for a collection of SVG files of maps of all countries in the world separately with the country codes included in the SVG or filename. It would have a structure like this:

  • AFG.svg
  • ALB.svg
  • ...
  • ZMB.svg
  • ZWE.svg

It would also be nice to have a projection that keeps the size of the countries realistically since I will use them to compare pairs of countries.

I have looked on the following places:

I also found a couple more resources which contain the whole world as one SVG or separate countries but no collection with all of them with country codes included.

Is there a resource which offers use for non-commercial purposes SVG of countries with a way to identify them by country code?

  • offhand, i bet wikimedia, openstreetmaps, and the noun project also have versions of this as well.

mapsicon is a free collection of maps for every country in the world, available in 11 sizes or in SVG.
The maps are named after the official two-letter country codes defined in ISO 3166-1. Basically, that means the United States are named US, Canada is named CA, etc.
If you need to access all those countries programmatically, here is a gist containing all the countries as well as their ISO code: https://gist.github.com/djaiss/2938259"

There's also:
Simple World Map: a simple and lightweight SVG world map, annotated with two-letter country code standard ISO 3166-1 alpha 2. This map is one SVG, not individual SVGs.
Marked-Up SVG World Map: an SVG world map marked-up with ISO 3166 country codes. Path (path) and group (g) elements are annotated with cc attributes containing their country codes.
