I'm looking for a program that included USGS type topo maps that will allow one to add, in layers, roads, bridges, cities, other infrastructure; hiking trails. I do not need private property boundaries, but political boundaries [ counties, states, countries ] is also desired.

My goal is a map collection of the earth's surface, but I'll be satisfied to begin with the USA & Europe.

Thanks for your suggestions.

I know of two free programs that will give you the maps but I am not sure if you can edit them.

Nasa WorldWind

Google Earth
http://earth.google.com/

There are a few free GIS software out there as well but I cant remember the name of them. I sent an email to my sister-in-law who does this for a living. I know she uses ArcGIS and AutoCAD on the profressional side but I doubt you can afford a couple thousand dollars for that.

Thanks.

I don't have a GPS device, but it is good to know the information you provided.

I'm willing to pay for the software.
