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

If a weather service would like to use OSM data (country borders) in media (videos/images for broadcasting/tv, youtube and the own web page) is it sufficient to place a link to OSM on the own web page?

No other map suppliers are used, so OSM would be the only reference.

As always I have to point out that this site is not the right place to ask for legal advice (which you should get from your own counsel).

Please refer to




for guidance from the licensor of OSM data.

Further: with the exception of self-produced tiles you will likely need to follow attribution requirements from your service provider.

If you have further questions please send them to legal-questions@osmfoundation.org
