Legally Required Attribution¶
Many of our data sources require attribution. Here's what you need to know!
As outlined in our terms of service, you must leave all automatically generated attributions in place, or replace them with something that conveys the same information in a way that fits your site/app UX. The content must retain the original spirit, and must still be prominent.
This isn't just about us. Thousands of people have put a lot of work into building OpenStreetMap, figuring out ways to efficiently slice up map tiles, and so on. In fact, we have a whole page on our site that highlights the efforts of those who make this all possible.
If you are using a platform that doesn't automatically generate attributions, please include the following text:
© Stadia Maps © OpenMapTiles © OpenStreetMap contributors
Make sure to preserve the links if possible:
© <a href="https://www.stadiamaps.com/" target="_blank">Stadia Maps</a> © <a href="https://openmaptiles.org/" target="_blank">OpenMapTiles</a> © <a href="https://www.openstreetmap.org/about/" target="_blank">OpenStreetMap contributors</a>
It should look something like this for most use cases:
Additional Attribution for Stamen Styles¶
Maps utilizing styles from Stamen Design must also include appropriate attribution. If your rendererer does not add this automatically, or you have opted to generate the attribution manually, please ensure that you include the following additional attribution (hyperlinked if the medium allows for it).
© <a href="https://stamen.com/" target="_blank">Stamen Design</a>
Additional Attribution for Satellite Imagery¶
If you are using our satellite imagery, you must also include attribution for the imagery. Most renderers should add this for you automatically. If yours does not, or you have opted to generate the attribution manually, please ensure that you include the following additional text. No hyperlink is required.
© CNES, Distribution Airbus DS, © Airbus DS, © PlanetObserver (Contains Copernicus Data)
Geocoding, Routing, and other APIs¶
You should include a credit to Stadia Maps and the original data source if applicable. The easiest way to do this is to link to our attribution page, where we list all of our data sources.
