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 the purchase of rights for the tiles we have created - which allows 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 worldwide coverage and ensuring the whole OpenMapTiles project is sustainable we offer additional commercial services and production data packages.

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

The data is purchased in the name of a single entity (company, institution, individual) which integrates the maps in its own products, services, or internal systems, 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 data or production package, for example, multiple websites or 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 only ask for a visible attribution (see the Attribution requirement section below).

Purchase by a reseller or distributor or purchase by a contractor for integration of the map data into its client’s project is possible with the Business production 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 purchase order of the Business production package. Contact us at [email protected].

Multi-license requirement

Multi-license is a yearly fee and can be acquired together with the Business production package only.

If your products or services containing the map data target other legal entities (companies/institutions) Multi-license is required. The fee is being calculated from the use case specifics and the number of such legal entities in the respective next 12 months. We welcome such applications but please, send these details to [email protected] first, we will provide you with the price offer.

Running a traditional commercial map tile hosting service for any third party is permitted but requires the Business production package with Multi-license as well.

Downloaded datasets shall not be made available to any third party as they are - neither for sale nor for free. If you want to redistribute our tilesets, please contact us at [email protected] first to describe your use case. The Business production map package is required together with Multi-license and we need to determine the yearly fee.

If the maps appear in a published form under your name you need your own license. Every branch (local company)needs its own rights or the parent company must purchase the Business production map package with Multi-license.

Premium styles

The Business production map package customers have a right to use and modify the KlokanTech premium styles to match their own company style. The right is not transferable to another third-party company or customer.

Attribution requirement

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

Exemption from the OpenMapTiles attribution requirement can be granted commercially in a written form by Klokan Technologies GmbH ([email protected]). The standard production package or individual purchase of the data does not provide such exemption.

For a browsable electronic map based on the OpenMapTiles and OpenStreetMap data, the credit should appear in the corner of the map. It is required to indicate:

© MapTiler © 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 or purchasing the production package 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 or Klokan Technologies GmbH 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 on 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 which is available at https://openmaptiles.com/server/. This software can be directly used with data downloaded from the OpenMapTiles website.

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

Support

Support is provided as a separate service at https://openmaptiles.com/support/.
