Add a licence to your data

After you have uploaded and imported data to your site, you will be able to set the licence terms. A licence sets out the permissions the data owner is providing to the user -- that is, a licence makes it clear what can (and cannot) be done with a particular dataset.  

All Koordinates sites have built-in Creative Commons licences, a free and standardised open licence. In addition, site administrators can define their own custom licences.

In this guide, we outline how you can add and manage licences on your data.


Upload and Import your data

Learn more about how to do so in our introductory guide.


Select your licence

After you select Import for your dataset, you will have the choice to add license information.

Simply scroll down to decide which license you wish to use.


Edit your licence using Edit [BETA]

At a later stage, you may wish to edit your license information. Alternatively, you may wish to add a new license.

To do so, click on the grey bar next to the large ‘+’ sign on your chosen dataset and select Edit [BETA].


Edit your licence

After you click on Edit [Beta], a pop-up screen will give you the same range of license options as 2), above.
