Customizable Maps in the Public Domain

Maps aren't difficult to find these days. Unfortunately, most of the good ones (including Google Maps) are copyrighted and you can't republish them without worrying about said copyright. In looking for some maps for my new Spectrum Shock campaign setting, I stumbled across this collection of sites that feature public domain maps. From there, I found www.nationalatlas.gov , which is a perfect resource for a D20 Modern game set in the United States. From this site, you can customize maps (zoom, layers, labels, etc) and then either save or print them.

They still aren't quite as good as Google Maps, but they're free to reuse however you see fit.

EDIT: Clarified second sentence to avoid further confusion. See comments.
