Subject: licence on CLC data
good afternoon,
I am participating in project , which is a project intending to create free wiki map of the world. Whole data is licensed allowing also commercial usage:
legal notice on this page is (probably) compatible with our licence
is it legally possible to import CLC (and other EEA datasets) into our database ?
looking forward to your positive answer


For attribution purposes, use attribute "source=EEA - dataset", (e.g. "source=EEA - CLC2006" for corine land cover 2006 dataset). Also list the import in Import/Catalogue.
