Call for Contributions

The WELT2000 project relies on contributions. Therefore you should advertise WELT2000 wherever possible.

As an extension to the Terms of Use as formulated in ODbL you must call for contributions when you redistribute the database (whether whole or in part) or create your own product with it or extend the dabase contents.

Hence at the places where ODbL has a reference to the license text or requires the inclusion of the same you must include a reference to the WELT2000 website, together with a call to contribute.

Official Aviation Publications

The use of the current publications from the relevant aviation authorities is a part of the responsibities of an aviator. WELT2000 only serves as a support during the preparation of and whilst carring out flights. It must be seen as an addition to the official publications. The WELT2000 database is no subsitute for the latter.
