You cannot legally or technically do this using ka-Map.  However, it  
is possible to do it using OpenLayers (www.openlayers.org).  If you  
choose to go the OpenLayers route, you can still use ka-Map to  
generate and cache tiles coming from a mapserver installation.

If you want to use your own maps, there is some free data available  
(vmap0) that goes down to 1:1000000 scale - nothing like Google, though.

<shameless plug>

DM Solutions Group sells data packages prepared for MapServer -  
http://maps.dmsolutions.ca/ - these packages will work with ka-Map.
