Data Access
#21
If the answer is "perhaps obvious", why would someone keep repeating over and over what has already been stated in this and numerous other threads?

Hi Cutty,

I can understand your frustration because of the many requests. However, I took care to read the publications of this thread (and I am not excellent in English, I am French). And I find that my situation is a little different.

For me, I will say that I have the right because the access will be in an open access part of my application (the rest of the content is paid) and I will not sell the data. But I have not seen a ban or permission to directly integrate your new vector map. I saw that it was allowed to use the raw data to make its own maps but is it the same for the Blitortung vector map already available?

I know that you receive many messages but believe me that I searched in what exists to find answers. It's not about malevolence, but I just want to do things right to comply with the politicy of this great project.

And I will soon invest in a red systemWink.

I Understand..  However, I'd suggest that, barring any specific direct permission from Egon, who 'Owns' Blitzortung:
  • The project may not represent commercial interests.
  • It must be of general interest for the participants of Blitzortung.org.
  • It must be different from existing projects. Do not just re-implement other projects. Do not setup yet another visualization of online data.
  • All applications that use our data must be freely accessible.
  • The source of the data must be clearly identified.
  • The operator must prevent any possible misuse of the data provided, as far as this is possible.
The applications (web sites, apps, ...) have to retrieve their data from a separate server and not from the servers of Blitzortung.org. All data remain under the CC-BY-SA 4.0 licens

And, for the Vector map specifically, any OpenStreetMap restrictions:

Additionally, both LMO and BT depend on the minuscule Ad revenue to help defray costs of operation.

Why not simply add a direct LINK to the vector maps pages into your app?

That's exactly what I want to do: integrate this new map in the application, the users click on the link and the map opens. That would be perfect. So it's goodWink?

Is it possible to directly integrate this new map into the free part of my smartphone / tablet application, in keeping with your data usage policy?

Thank you for your answer.
Alexandre.


Could someone answer me? It would be niceWink The answer is perhaps obvious but I wish above all to respect the data access policy of this great service. Thank you !

Your question would attract a lot more attention if you started a new thread.
