The COPYRIGHT statement sets an optional copyright name attribute.

The copyright string is written into the created GBFS file. This copyright is then displayed by default in the lower right corner of a map drawn using this GBFS file. The copyright string is also available to GeoBase applications as the value of the CopyrightString property. (If you are using a multi-repository, the CopyrightString property includes this COPYRIGHT statement along with the copyright strings for the other data files included in the repository.) If you do not supply a COPYRIGHT attribute, the value of the CopyrightString property for a SimpleRepository that references the GBFS file is an empty string.

The COPYRIGHT is one of the Attributes that can optionally be specified at the start of the import file. All of these attributes are optional, but if you include any, they must be specified in the following order (OUTPUT first, REGIONS last):

  • OUTPUTSets the filename of the output GBFS file
    DATASETSets an arbitrary name for this dataset
    COPYRIGHTSets a copyright for this dataset
    COUNTRYSets the name of the country that this dataset represents
    UNITSSets the unit system that this dataset uses - Metric or Imperial
    REGIONSSets the region information for this dataset


The COPYRIGHT statement must be placed at the start of the .alchemy import script alongside any other attribute statements, but before any non-attribute statements. Order of attribute statements is important.



valueThe desired value for the copyright attribute.
