License Update: Now Creative Commons Share Alike

It has been six weeks since we announced that we were licensing our photos with Creative Commons. The license we chose was the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 License (CC BY-NC). Our reasoning was explained in the accompanying blog post.

Today we are making modifications to the license and are switching to a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 License (CC BY-SA).

Creative Commons License

Our updated legal summary page has the details.

This now means we have a true open data license and that we are welcoming people to use our photos. Our guiding principle remains the same: maximize sharing and use of all our photos without totally compromising us building a sustainable business.

We are in this to build something great and we have many cool features to come. As a commercial business we are still in the early phases but we plan to build some great products on these photos and the data we create using our algorithms. Stay tuned.

Now let's map this world.
