It isn't, but in this case it doesn't matter: this is what's sometimes
described as a "thin copyright". Reproducing the photograph itself is an act
restricted by copyright, but deducing information from it isn't. (Of course,
such deduction may be prohibited by contract - as with Google Street View -
but Geograph's terms make no such restriction.)
