I don't know how secret these are, but:


*How* free these are varies from map to map. As well as the quality.

These are in so called Polish format. Most complete description is
available in cGPSmapper manual AFAIK [1]. There is a freeware (closed)
program for converting them into Shapefiles [2]. Some other converter
[3]. Mateusz Loskot has worked on an OGR driver, but I don't know
details (CCing him).



Please better ask generic free GIS data questions on FreeGIS ML.
