Although, for the most part, CC-BY-SA does have roughly the same effect in
all jurisdictions. You can do whatever you want with the geodata, so long
as you don't legally restrict others from using the geodata you add.
In jurisdictions where geodata is protected, CC-BY-SA ensures that any
derivative works are under CC-BY-SA. In jurisdictions where geodata isn't
protected, any geodata which is added to the work can't be legally
restricted from reuse anyway.
