Good day. Help me to understand. We wrote a travel guide and plan to distribute it via amazon, both in print and in electronic form (kindle). We used openstreetmap maps and used graphhopper to build routes, and pasted them in the form of pictures in our book. As I understand it, I can use all this for commercial purposes. But I can’t really understand what exactly and where I need to indicate in the book to respect copyright. I understand that I need to provide a link to at the beginning or at the end of the book, and do I need to provide some information about the graphhopper. ? And what exactly do I need to write? can you throw an example? Thank you in advance. Because of not very good English, I cannot be exactly sure that I understand everything correctly.

In addition to the copyright page, I recommend the Legal FAQ's "How should I attribute you?" section as a resource on how to attribute OSM. It has this to say on the placement of attribution for printed works:

For a printed map, the credit should appear beside the map if that is where other such credits appear, and/or in the "acknowledgements" section of the publication (often at the start of a book or magazine).

I unfortunately don't know what kind of attribution GraphHopper expects on top of OSM's. If this is unclear, you might want to contact GraphHopper's developers.
