Hello fellow OSMers,
I have discovered some Romanian maps on
http://mapcenter.cgpsmapper.com/catalogue.php?country=184 and I would
like to make sure that I can use them as a datasource for OSM. The FAQ
page on that site says something like:
*Q: What are the maps usage restrictions? Can I modify the downloaded
A: Uploading their maps, authors agree that maps will be free to
personal use and free to modify for personal purposes. Authors may
decide to allow some other uses and/or allow to redistribute modified
maps under certain conditions.
I understand that usually we cannot use the information, but in some
cases (I saw maps that are marked as "allowed uses: No restrictions",
for example) we can use the information.
Am I correct in my assumption?
