You’ll remember there was great speculation about where the data came from. Many people said OSM, I was sure it was TIGER/Line. Well as you can see there is a huge blend of open and free data sources from OSM to TIGER to VMap0 and Geonames. Two commercial sources you may be familiar with are LeadDog and Urban Mapping.
