At LCA (linux.conf.au) this week I went to a discussion about FOSS and
geospatial tools. It is something I am tangentially interested in so I
don't know a great deal about it.
It was mentioned almost in passing that the Queensland government is
going to (or has??) release a bunch of geospatial data under "all
Creative Commons licenses" (I have some doubts on this point since it
seems a little overkill, surely CC-BY is enough for maximum reuse?).
Anyway the relevant department seems to be
<http://www.qsic.qld.gov.au/QSIC/QSIC.nsf/>. Lacking the patience to
decode governmentspeak I was hoping someone might be able to point to
me to any document like a licensing policy or a press release. Seems
like a big deal??! If it has happened then I guess it would also be
worth mentioning on cc.org.au ?
... which makes me think it hasn't happened yet...
Insight welcome, please :)
They've just been waiting in a mountain for the right moment:
