This is a project started by the Public Geospatial Data Committee

The right to reuse and redistribute publically accessible bodies of data needs to be clear. This group can help provide guidelines for public geodata licensing, both of community-contributed and state-collected bodies of data.


  • Provision of clear guidelines for licenses, and the implications of their uses, for people contributing data to geospatial web / GSDI efforts.
  • Potential work on a draft LPGL license to complement the draft PGL.
