    For a real world map, you'll need to work out a source of data. You can't just trace over a screenshot of Google Maps as it's restricted by copyright. OpenStreetMap might work if you are OK with the license terms.

    You can usually also get data from governmental sources; at least in the US, anything actually gathered by the USGS is public domain (although their maps sometimes contain data which is copyrighted, so you have to look at the maps' notices).
