Data is provided under the ODbL license which requires to share alike (although small extractions are likely to be covered by fair usage / fair dealing).

note that using a service which is run by someone else is different from the data license:

  • Using the service is covered by the usage policy of the person/organisation who runs the service. If possible you should (in case of much usage) run your own service – the code is under a GPLv2 license.
  • What you can do with the returned results is covered by the data license: ODbL. Please read the full license text and consult a lawyer if you need an evaluation of your own situation/use case. There have been many questions about using OSM data in commercial products in the past, please read over there:
