Basemap data installation

I am experimenting with the Enthought Python Distribution (EPD) on MacOS 10.5, which includes BaseMap version 0.99.1. I have existing modules that use the 'full' resolution data. These modules are currently failing with the error message below.

I have tried copying what looked like the full resolution data sets (gshhs_f.dat and gshhsmeta_f.dat) from my 0.99.2 source installation into the EPD basemap data directory, and rerun my scripts, with no success.

I looked at my most recent copy of the basemap README and cannot find any reference to the boundary datasets.

So, a question for Jeff, and a request for Enthought:
1) How do I update the EPD with the full resolution data
2) Can the EPD be updated to include the full resolution boundary data?

Thanks,

Mike

IOError: Unable to open boundary dataset file. Only the 'crude', 'low',
'intermediate' and 'high' resolution datasets are installed by default.
If you are requesting a 'full' resolution dataset, you may need to
download and install those files separately
(see the basemap README for details).
Exception caught: Unable to open boundary dataset file. Only the 'crude', 'low',

Mike: To save space, the EPD folks took out the full resolution datasets. Manually copying the files should work - are you sure you got them in the right place (the mpl_toolkits/basemap/data directory)? You probably have to copy more than the gshhs file (the states, rivers and countries too).

Jeff - Copying the rest of the files solved the problem. Thanks!
