Hi there, I am making a website with multiple motorsports calendars, for which I want to create track maps based on Openstreetmap data. The main calendar page will look similar to the Formula 1 calendar page (The track maps will look similar as well). As far as I understood everything I have to give credit using "Map data © OpenStreetMap" linking to I also read that I can give credit once for multiple images on one site. Am I allowed to put this credit at the bottom of the page or does it have to be directly below the image?

Thanks in advance.

You may find the attribution guidelines and Licence and Legal FAQ helpful. I think this is ultimately a question of interpreting the license though and I and many of the others who frequent this site aren't qualified to advise on that.

It would be nice to put a small attribution below each image, as most users won't go to the bottom of the page.

But indeed, a larger text, at the bottom, with some explanation of the data used, would be sufficient IMHO. Something visible, like a logo, might be nice as well (not instead).

Thanks very much for your answer, I'll probably be doing a small attribution below each image and then put a larger text at the bottom. If you click on a race there will be a more detailed page which will use the same image and there I will attribute it right below the image, so users should see where the data comes from anyways.

I think that will be perfect.

Best of luck with your project.
