OpenStreetMap and LandMap Vivo
Real Vector Maps
No licence fee
If you create own maps based on external soruces it is harmless for private use only. But if you want to pass on or publish the map it is problematic cause almost all available map data are licence protected. Even the "free" accessible sources of "Virtual Earth", "Google Maps" or "Google Earth" may not be used to any purpose.
In contrast data based on OpenStreetMap are absolutely free, may be passed on the everyone and may be published. Only condition is to designate the source and that in the same way everyone may use your map for free. This involves that you may use maps based on OpenStreetMap in commercial projects and even sell these maps.
OpenStreetMap is a relatively young project with an explosive development. Further information see www.openstreetmap.org.
