About Licensing

Data available from GRIN is provided under the terms of a Standard Data Licence or an Open Data Licence. We continue to review our data and licensing approach and are committed to providing access to more data over time. GRCA may make changes to the terms of these licenses from time to time, to be released in the form of a new version of a licence. Your use of the information will be governed by the terms of the licence in force as of the date you accessed the information.


GRCA's most widely used licence has been around since 2003. There are some limits to use and distribution of information under this licence. Static maps or charts created using this information should acknowledge GRCA by including an attribution statement. Please read the full licence for more details.

This is a human-readable summary of (and not a substitute for) the GRCA Standard Data Licence v3.

* Although data distribution is forbidden, distribution of static maps and charts is permitted.

Introduced in 2014, our Open Data Licence allows you to distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon our work, even commercially, as long as you credit GRCA for the original creation and license new creations under identical terms. This is our most accommodating licence offered and allows for maximum dissemination and use of GRCA's licensed information.
