Maps are useful in many contexts, and lots of services provide them in various ways.

While I regularly see things like Google Maps published in articles that are supposedly under open licenses, I have not yet seen a service that provides maps that are

  • public domain/CC0
  • covering the entire globe
  • reasonably detailed (say, no more than 100m per pixel in highest resolution)
  • reasonably up to date (say, not older than a year)
I am aware of services that are fulfilling some of the criteria, and some of them are listed in responses to a similar question I had posted earlier, but none that fulfill them all, so I would appreciate pointers.
