Needing to replace Google maps in an ASP.NET web application as their new licensing costs exceed what I can afford. It must support the following:

  1. Adding points of interest using their GPS location, one to several hundred per map.
  2. Custom pin icons.
  3. Pin icon supports modal dialogs.
  4. Geocode from address with support of storing the GPS information in a local database.
  5. Interactive map, not a static jpeg.
  6. Cost for up to 10K transactions per month should be as low as possible, prefer free, even if a login is required to access the map area.
  7. Map access is available server side, not just client side.
  8. It does not have to support route planning, satellite or street view as they are not used.

From your experiences, what are your suggestions?

What I have tried:

Right now I'm looking at MapQuest but some of the required functionality is only available via Leaflet plugins.

I hope my answer will be helpful.

I think this is OpenStreetMap:
OpenStreetMap — Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[^],

It's not just a service roughly matching Google Maps, but also a lot of open-source software, API, different alternative viewers, editors, and… what not.
