commercial use of downloaded map

Hi everyone,

I would like to download an offline map (ONC-OstfriesischeInseln14.png) and print the map onto a table of a restaurant in germany.
Now my question: Is this allowed and do I have to print a copyright mark in it?

thanks in advance

Re: commercial use of downloaded map

Hi mazl,

basically you can use the OpenStreetMap/OpenSeaMap DATA in any way you want to.
The ONC-offline charts are maintained by a group called OpenNauticalCharts, so you should put your question there.

In any case it will be nice to inform the people seeing the printed map about the OpenSeaMap project, especially in coastal areas, where the chance of contributors is not to dismiss. ;-)

Thanks for the answer. I put a "Openseamap contributors" hint on the print.
