I had a reply to my tweet: "Mildly disappointed charity @*sustrans*
<https://twitter.com/sustrans> are paying for copyright data when
they're free to use OSM" (also went to @openstreetmap)
Sustrans said "There was no cost to Sustrans for this mapping. Mapping
licensed by local authority"
I'm assuming this means we're all paying for it via local taxes & see
this as an greater reason to swap to OSM. Does anyone have the details
of this arrangement?
I'm surprised they think the political stance should be a barrier.
