Data Usage Policy & Where to Find It

As part of this project, we need a place to store all of the individually released tables, images and data. So we did what all nerds do, by nature… we set up a GitHub repository to house it all. Our work in that repository AND on this web site is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International aka (CC BY 4.0).

What does this mean?

You are free to:

  • for any purpose, even commercially.

HOWEVER you must do so under the following terms:

  • Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.In our case, the most basic form of attribution that you need to use is:
