Attribution guidelines

Details of when and how attribution should be included when using TravelTime data.

Updated over a week ago

When do I need to include attribution

Attribution should be included whenever TravelTime data, or analysis created using this data, is made available to users outside of the primary user's organisation (the 'Licensee').
This includes, for example:

  • A mobile or web application where search functionality is powered by the TravelTime API

  • A report that is produced using one of the TravelTime plugins and is shared with a third party, such as an end customer

  • A blog post, article, tweet, or research paper where TravelTime data is used to create any of the results / visuals / analysis

How to include attribution

In the majority of cases, a simple linked text attribution is all that is required. Specific details can be found below.

Visuals / images / maps

When TravelTime data is displayed directly (e.g an isochrone on a map) then the following attribution should be used:

Reports / articles

When TravelTime data is used indirectly (e.g to calculate reachable population values in a report) then the following attribution should be used:

Map Tiles

When using the Map Tiles API from TravelTime (e.g as the base map on a web application) then the following attribution should be used:

  • Attribution text - "OpenStreetMap | Created with TravelTime API"

  • The below code snippet can be used for these purposes:

    Map data &copy; <a href="">OpenStreetMap</a>; | Created with <a href=""" target="_blank">TravelTime API</a>sdgf

When displaying TravelTime data on a base map from the TravelTime API (e.g an isochrone on a TravelTime map) then only the Map Tiles attribution is required.
