Is there a better way to do this? (cleaning up messy code)

Discussion created by dwaynie on May 12, 2012

I hired this guy to make this script which splits the Natural Earth world maps up into individual countries. But I'm a bit concerned about the messy code - even though I'm not much of a programmer, I always try to make sure my code is as beautiful as it can be.

Having said that, can anybody suggest ways I can simplify it, or ways to achieve the stuff in the TODO list?


Thanks in advance!
