Licensing Updates

Fri, 08 Oct 2010

Ed Parsons has a couple of useful recent blog posts on data licensing. Specifically the clarification of derived data for OS licenses and open government licensing (which might include OS OpenData but I'm not entirely clear). For the OS licensing, the key points Ed draws out are:

  • no restrictions on deriving or displaying data based on OS Opendata datasets
  • data collected by independent means (GPS, field survey) and then verified in relation to OS data is free of OS restrictions
  • licensing data for business use, are able to infer the position or create new data without restrictions as long as the new data is not a direct copy of an existing feature in the OS product

All good stuff and increases the ability to incorporate (some) OS data in to maps published at the Journal of Maps.
