I am forwarding your message to the Open Source Geospatial Foundation Public
Geospatial Data Committee (https://geodata.osgeo.org/) since I think some of
those folks will have useful information for you. 


All the best,

Subject: [APPLIED-GIS-RS] Creating maps, copyright free or reasonably priced


Hello all, 

I am hoping someone can advise. I have a question in relation to creating
maps of villages/towns/counties that are copyright free. I need to produce a
few for a book from large scale to small scale. For instance - a map of the
South of Ireland showing main towns and transport network, to a map of a
village showing streets and main facilities such as post office. Are there
any that are either free or can be bought at a reasonable cost. 

Has anyone done this before. The costs of buying maps off the national
mapping agency here is prohibitive for this kind of thing.

Many thanks in advance.
