License: my route calculation on OSM data in a commercial product


I have checked these sites:

and my understanding is that if I use OSM data as such (no modification) in a commercial product to calculate a route using my own algorithm, I don’t need to share my algorithm.

The route calculation is not considered as a derivative work.

Is it correct?

Thank you

The route will contain the coordinates of nodes in the OSM database, so I would say it was derivative. Your algorithm would not be a derivative of the OSM data.
