Creative commons for data sharing

Posted by josediacono @ 8:59 pm under Uncategorized

I learned a lot about creative commons last week at FOSS4G – they are being used in Australia (Queensland) and overseas (Canada). Initially used for creative works such as written texts, images and photos. I’d like to publish our Raising the Profile of spatial survey under creative commons but didn’t know how to do it. Neale Hooper of QUT was very helpful, pointing me to    http://www.oaklaw.qut.edu.au/ For some examples of works licensed under CC licences.

Creative Commons

The peak body in the Australian and New Zealand spatial industry — Anzlic — is expected to endorse Creative Commons as the basis of sharing data sets.
