dear R-tists,

i want to graph information for the German Federal States (Bundeslaender) using the maps package. unfortunately there is no maps for the German Bundeslaender.

does anyone have an idea / a source where to get map data that can be used in the maps package that graphs structures below the country level. 

in the long run it would also be interesting to integrate Swiss Cantons and Austrian Bundesländer... 

any suggestions are highly appreciated.
