I downloaded http://www.gapminder.org/data/ after choosing "ALL" and noticing the spreadsheet links end in "output=xlsx". I changed the xlsx to csv to see what would happen, and did, indeed, get CSV files as expected.

You could probably also scrape data from this site. I've been using another one that allows up to 20 free requests a day. However, these two, and possibly any other services might not ...

I always bring a GPS and two paper maps: one in my mapcase around my neck, and a backup map in my rucksack, in case I lose my mapcase including map.

If I had to choose one I would certainly take only the ...

You'd have to combine many sources. And your target resolution is very high! For elevation, I would suggest the well-known SRTM, available at 30 m resolution globally, availble through this: https://earthexplorer.usgs.gov/ For vegetation data, you might use the landuse, landcover and natural tags of OpenStreetMap (OSM).
