i needed little help on how to go about it. i do not have much knowledge about Google Maps or Bing Maps API's as I am the database guy.

We are building an emergency response system of a city. So for this we are using Neo4J as the database which till now has been very satisfactory.

But now to generate the city map- Is there a way that I can get the details of the city ie basically all streets, landmarks etc etc in any format. Once I have this data, then i can imbed them in the database and proceed.

Basically a way to get the complete details of the city.

It looks like you need to be using a GIS system. Doesn't the local government have that data? Most cities or counties have the data. They need it for their other services, some will sell it to companies.
