Well, I may be correct, but you didn't answer my question <g>. The availability and sources of map data - whether free or not - varies widely by geography, and if you can tell us what geography you're interested in (floorplans in Antarctica?) we might be able to suggest good sources.

You are correct!
The application will support maps and floor plans. The floorplans will definitely
be supplied by the user of the application on a per need basis. However, I
thought that the geographic maps were to be *only* public domain. In
actuality, the user of the application would purchase geographic maps based,
in a format supported by mapserver, based on whatever needs they are trying
to fulfill. I'd thought that I was rebuffed when suggesting purchasing certain
items in the past, put there is an understanding that a user of the application
would at least potentially have to purchase maps.
And there was my mistake. I thought purchasing data was off the table, but
this isn't the case at all.
