Dear all,

This might be a silly question for true GIS users. I barely used the sw but now I should draw some simple distribution maps (just dots on certain localities).
I want to use a base  shaded relief map and place over district boundaries only. Have downloaded them from the server, still for some reason I am unable to remove locality names, city boundaries and highways.
Could anyone help please?

Thank you very much in advance.
