hi Pnorman, at 07:43, 29. Okt. 2013‎ on boundary_protected_area-disc. > "...they're incompatible with OSM and people have mistakenly imported from them in the past." sorry - a time ago, but: what do you mean therewith? That user insert "IV" insted of "4"? On my view, the link to pp is important and usefull. --Typoshrub (talk) 11:27, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

We can't use WDPA to map in OSM. We aren't allowed to import it, but people have. Pnorman (talk) 15:20, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

hi, Thank you - I didn't think about that copyright.
Isn't it as queer to hide an internetlink as hide to tagg a private highway?
Whether setting an extra link to the Terms <>, with giving an appeal to don't download the data, just use them for information? That seems to me more wise.
But anyway - if OSM wants, we skip the link from the resources-list (but I remember it on other places).
Best, --Typoshrub (talk) 21:36, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

We can't use them for information and the link was confusing them. Pnorman (talk) 22:02, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Pnorman, on [1] you've entered that New Westminster has no open data, but I see they now offer a variety of open data [2] under the Open Government Licence - City of New Westminster. Since OSM is allowed to use OGL-Canada and OGL-BC data, I would assume this data is compliant with the ODbL as well? --Alarobric (talk) 21:25, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

We'd need to get permission. OGL-Canada and OGL-BC 1.0 are okay since we have explicit permission Pnorman (talk) 01:28, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
