I’m new in OSM and I’m little bit confused about licencing and using OSM data. I would like to make paper map of tourist area so I downloaded sph files from this link: http://download.geofabrik.de/openstreetmap/ and made a map where are roads, forests, villages and towns, railways, water from this source in scale 1:100 000. I styled by myself (and different than on openstreetmap.org). I added few tips for tracks (as “you should visit this place, this, this, this and use this way. whole is 35km long”). And now the question, can I sell this map (in the map is written something like (c)OSM)? Or must I give this map for free?
Sorry, if this is stupid question, question answered many times before, I just need to be sure, that what I do is ok, because OSM is great project, so I don’t want to do anything bad
Thanks a lot,
Ofcourse you may sell this map. The license only requires you to add something like “© OpenStreetMap contributors” on your map. See this wiki page for more information.
Good luck, I hope your map sells well!
Thanks a lot, you bring peace to my soul
I would love to see the map that you created, is it possible that you post a (low resolution) image? It could be a candidate for “image of the week”.
Perhaps rather Map data © OpenStreetMap contributors as stated in http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Legal_FAQ#3a._I_would_like_to_use_OpenStreetMap_maps._How_should_I_credit_you.3F
The map itself is a produced work it can be published under what ever license including all the non-free licenses.
Not yet, it isn’t fully complete :). But after it will fully complete, of course :). Is somewhere link, where could I upload small image, or should I uploaded it here?
