Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I'd like to use a part of the OpenStreetMap-map for my book which is going to be published in the next time as public book. Generally I want to download the map and edit it. So, I know that I have to call the source of the map I used for the book, but what must I especially call? Is the notice "© OpenStreetMap-Mitwirkende" enought?

Sorry for my bad English, I'm a pretty young guy. Regards, maxim112000

Yes, "© OpenStreetMap-Mitwirkende" is enough. You can put it on/beside each map, or at the end of the book with all the other aknowledgements. This is explained on the copyright page.

And apparently, translating “© OpenStreetMap contributors” is fine too, as the copyright page itself is translated.
