ODBL license OSM

Hi,

I have a question regarding the OSM ODBL license.

I want to make a map with an OSM base layer, visualised together data from another source (for example elevation data).
With QGIS I want to add vector layers, based on OSM (via tags). For example: roads or points of interest.

With this product, I would like to be able to:

1. publish it online, possibly as an interactive variant
2. sell it as an interactive variant
3. sell it as a print

What is allowed here and what are my obligations?

Regards,

Marc

Re: ODBL license OSM

Hi Marc!

You are allowed to do all of that with OpenStreetMap data.

You'll need to provide attribution to OpenStreetMap on each of your 3 products:
https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Lic … Guidelines

I do not believe you are required to share any data. Only the OSM-based vector layers would be a derivative database, and this kind of filtering is likely a "trivial transformation" that is exempt from the share-alike requirements.

Re: ODBL license OSM

Thanks. I was reading through the License/Attribution guidelines. For print, my conclusion would be that this would be ok:

"(c) OpenStreetmap, openstreetmap.org/copyright"

Is that correct?

Re: ODBL license OSM

Personally, I believe that would be sufficient.

Oh, and not that it matters much, but OpenStreetMap is spelled with an uppercase "M". smile
