Communication in 2016

In July 2016, communication with Data.SA extended the original permission to include data released under CC-BY-4.0 licence as well as previously approval for data released under CC-BY-3.0.

Confirmation Email

Hi Michael

Great to hear more SA open data is being reused on Open Map.

Thank you for all the time and effort you put into updating Open map and adding Australian content. All the time and effort you contribute as a volunteer is really appreciated.

The South Australian Government provides that explicit permission previously provided is extended to include data published under the CC-BY-4.0 licence.

I confirm the proposed statement on the Contributors page of the OSM Wiki as follows

"Contains data from South Australian government public information datasets. The original datasets are available from the South Australian government data directory http://www.data.sa.gov.au/ under a Creative Commons Attribution Licence. Where specific licence terms (such as Creative Commons) are applied to datasets, those licence terms shall prevail over any inconsistent provisions in this statement. We have also been given explicit permission to incorporate and publish such CC-BY licensed geographic coordinate datasets under a free and open license, including the Open Database License, provided that primary attribution is made here and that each dataset used is also listed here in the format Dataset Name, Date Published, License, Publishing Organisation Name, originally retrieved from http://data.sa.gov.au"

Please let me know if you need anything else, including requests for data.

Thank you again for contributing South Australian government data to the Open Map

Original Communication in 2013

In May-July 2013, I had correspondence with sa.data.gov.au where I asked for explicit permission to include data from sa.data.gov.au with an attribution statement similar to data.gov.au. This has been confirmed in an email message that I have published portions of below (portions of headers at the bottom). Alex Sims (talk) 05:30, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
