The Protomaps Basemap is a general purpose vector base map - city labels, roads, water features and other essential location context derived from OpenStreetMap. It's available as a single PMTiles archive, distributed as an Open Database License Produced Work (OpenStreetMap attribution required)
A full planet file is roughly 120 gigabytes, including zoom levels from 0 to 15.
