The OGL states that where information is re-used, you must: "Acknowledge the source of the Information in your product or application by including or linking to any attribution statement specified by the Information Provider(s) and, where possible, provide a link to this licence".

In line with the National Archives' "Open Government Licence: Guidance for Information Providers" guidance, the following attribution statement should be used:

Public Rights of Way, Cambridgeshire County Council [date the data was issued to you], licensed under the Open Government Licence

Rights of Way standard data disclaimer

Please be aware that a council's Definitive Map and Statement are the authoritative source of information about the public rights of way in that council's area. The details contained in this published dataset are for information only, and are an interpretation of the Definitive Map and Statement, not the legal records themselves.

They should not be relied on for determining the position or alignment of any public right of way.

For legal purposes, the data does not replace its Definitive Map and Statement, and changes may have been made to the legal records that are not included in this data.

The end user will require the appropriate software for base mapping to be displayed and a suitable GIS system to enable the data to be viewed.

The information is used for indicative purposes only, and does contain errors and anomalies. Where clarification of a route or boundary is required, the original Map and Statement must be consulted and the Highways Asset Information team must be consulted at:

The data is current at the time of publication. Changes can be made daily and therefore some of the data may quickly become out-of-date.

Information is given without prejudice to applications made under Section 53 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 or Section 15 of the Commons Act 2006 that may subsequently be proved.

For these reasons, other users of the data should be made aware of the constraints in the data. We would advise that Cambridgeshire County Council's Public rights of way mapping Disclaimer should be clearly shown whenever the data is used, and so that people know who to contact if they have any queries:

"The public rights of way shown on this map are copied from Cambridgeshire County Council's digital version of the Definitive Map. The data should not be used for legal purposes. If in any doubt please contact the Asset Information Team via email" (
