Location Data - Licences
ODUG developing business case
This data request has been included in the work ODUG is undertaking on third party licences. For further information, please see http://data.gov.uk/open-data-user-group-benefits-cases-for-release-of-data
Data request description:
There are currently 1076 'location' data sets on data.gov.uk. Only 8 (0.74%) are listed as being available under an Open Government Licence. This means that it is impossible to use the data with confidence that you are not bound by restrictive terms and conditions that may lead to legal action being raised against you.
The data is available but the licensing terms are too restrictive
This release would improve data.gov.uk
Transparency as to how data can be used.
