    As far as I know, there is no royalty-free database of maps.

    I think you should just stick to Google Maps and possibly create an overlay where the more people use your system, the

    more content they create.

    In other words, you're using the free content provided by Google as a framework with which you collect user-generated

    content.

    I've seen this play out in user tagging of Google Maps.

    You can then harvest this information and make money off of it.

    What's important is you set the framework properly.
