Free data

We love the open-source and open-data community. That is the reason why we work on the OpenMapTiles project in the first place, and why we publish the pre-generated OpenStreetMap vector tiles completely for free.

The FREE tiles are legally usable for:

  • open-source and open-data community project websites
  • non-commercial personal projects
  • evaluation and education purposes

Any other use (esp. integration with applications deployed in production, commercial products, mobile apps, official institutional web portals, etc.) require purchase of the rights for the tiles we have created - which allow us to maintain and develop this project further.

It is great to see our map tiles and our open-source software actively used!

Purchased data

We want to help your business grow with our maps. To cover the costs of processing, hosting and updating of the large geographical data with world-wide coverage and ensuring the whole OpenMapTiles project is sustainable we offer additional commercial services and data packages.

Self-hosting is the main idea behind the OpenMapTiIes.com data packages.

The data are purchased in the name of a single entity (company, institution, individual) which integrates the maps in its own products or services, for example a mobile app, web application, software displaying the individual map tiles loaded from a centralized web server, etc.

The rights apply to all the products of the entity who purchased the package, for example multiple websites and all mobile apps released in the name of the entity (a single company).

There are no restrictions on the type of usage of the maps you create with the purchased data. Feel free to use the purchased data in your free or commercial apps, for asset tracking, offline, on the intranet, in embedded devices, navigation software, to create printed products, video recordings, etc. It is your business. We ask only for visible attribution (see below).

Running a traditional commercial map tile hosting service for third parties is permitted, but requires Business Plus with multi-license.

If you work on another B2B product which permits other business and institutions to use the maps in their products, or requires deploy of the whole dataset to a third party - please contact us first and describe your use case. We welcome such applications, but we need to talk.

Purchase by reseller or distributor or purchase by a contractor for integration of the map data into his client’s project is possible with the Business Plus package, which allows different billing and technical contacts and purchase with an invoice and bank wire transfer. We can provide a distributor / integrator discount already from the second order. Contact us.

No direct redistribution

Downloaded datasets shall not be made available to third-parties as they are - neither for sale or for free. If you want to redistribute our tilesets, please contact us.

If the maps appear in a published under you need your own license. Branch (local company) needs own license - or the parent must purchase multi-license.

Premium styles

Business PLUS customers have right to use and modify the KlokanTech premium styles for their own company. The right is not transferable to other companies or customers.

Attribution requirement

The OpenMapTiles has a strict requirement of attribution on the produced maps - whether you use the free, purchased or self-generated map tiles. It is important part of the sustainability strategy. By using OpenMapTiles you agree to provide such attribution on the maps you display.

Exemption from OpenMapTiles attribution requirement can be granted commercially in a written form by Klokan Technologies GmbH (info@klokantech.com). The standard production package or individual purchase does not provide the exemption.

For a browsable electronic map based on OpenMapTiles and OpenStreetMap data, the credit should appear in the corner of the map. For example:

© OpenMapTiles © OpenStreetMap contributors

For printed maps, images or video recording a similar attribution should be made in a clearly visible textual description near the map, in the same fashion as if you cite a photograph.

Please ensure your application complies to data attribution requirements for datasets such as Satellite, contours, hillshading and terrain derived from DEM.

No warranties

The map data and software are provided “as is” without warranties or conditions of any kind, whether oral or written, express or implied. By downloading or ordering the data you confirm you have verified the quality of the data in the public preview and you accept it is of sufficient quality for your use case.

Limitation of Liability

Except to the extent prohibited by law, in no event shall the OpenMapTiles team be liable for direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential or other damages (including lost profit or lost data) arising out of the use, inability to use, or the results of the use of our data or software, whether based in warranty, contract, tort or other legal theory, and whether or not advised of the possibility of such damages.

Software

To make the adoption of the OpenMapTiles map data as easy as possible - we have developed a ready-to-use map server with available at https://openmaptiles.com/server/. This software can be directly used with data downloaded from our website.

It is powered by open-source components our team released on GitHub. Production setup and assistance with large scale deployment is offered separately.
