Re: Cities maps

There is the WorldMap template for AspMap at It includes the places.shp file in the App_Data/WorldMap directory, it contains about 8000 populated places. The same data is available at

Another file with about 250,000 locations is available here. The locations were extracted from the freely available OpenStreetMap planet file.
