Yes.

The summary (http://opendatacommons.org/licenses/odbl/summary/) says:

"Attribute: You must attribute any public use of the database, or works
produced from the database, in the manner specified in the ODbL. For any use
or redistribution of the database, or works produced from it, you must make
clear to others the license of the database and keep intact any notices on
the original database."

And the full licence says:

"4.2 Notices. If You Publicly Convey this Database, any Derivative Database,
or the Database as part of a Collective Database, then You must: [...] c.
Keep intact any copyright or Database Right notices and notices that refer
to this License."

"4.3 [...] if you Publicly Use a Produced Work, You must include a notice
associated with the Produced Work reasonably calculated to make any Person
that uses, views, accesses, interacts with, or is otherwise exposed to the
Produced Work aware that Content was obtained from the Database, Derivative
Database, or the Database as part of a Collective Database, and that it is
available under this License."
