Hello. I am new in cartography but I am  very interested in it. So, I made all the exercises and training programs from this website but every time it is provided some data. Now I want to make maps with my local area but I don't know from where I can take the vector data, templates and topo maps. Any ideas? Maybe some websites with open data sources for all the earth? It would be very helpful. Thanks. :D
