[talk-au] A question about the license that applies to a product from OSM data

Hello all,

I have a question about applying the ODbL. I can take this to the legal list, but I am hoping there is a quick and easy answer.

Some contractors working for my organisation are building a network model for Queensland using OSM data.

The model is for routing, and has value-added attributes, for example, weighting of particular routes.

My question is, does the ODbL apply to this result?

Or is attribution "raw data was sourced from OpenStreetMap" sufficient?
