So, just to confirm - is it OK to use GPS traces as source material for remapping, even if they may have been contributed
by someone who has refused the CTs?

Reason I ask is that this precise issue came up today... damned battery ran out 15 mins before the walk finished,
meaning I couldn't get a new trace. However I noted that it was a designation=public_footpath.
