Working Groups

Collective Database Guideline

The LWG has sent the guideline to the board for approval.

A possible addition suggested by the LWG was the addition of the example

You have a proprietary list of restaurants for a country. You would like to complement your list with the corresponding data from OpenStreetMap removing any duplicate objects in the process. The resulting, combined database would not be covered by this guideline and you would, if the dataset is publicly used, have to consider that your proprietary data may be subject to the ODbL share-alike terms.
