In the time that I have run this site, many open source projects have fallen by the wayside.  One project that has been active for over two years now, and kept up to date is the Route Me mapping library project.

What Route Me allows you to is use virtually any source for your in-app location maps while providing the same look and feel as the native iOS Map tiles.  Those sources can be Google Map alternatives such as OpenStreetMap.org,  Microsoft VirtualEarth , but what makes it especially useful is that you can use your own sources such as DBMap and MBtiles.

The project includes a number of samples demonstrating the extensive functionality of the library, more information on the supported formats, and it can be found on Github at:
https://github.com/route-me/route-me

It is a great library  if you ever have the need to include your own maps within an app.
