We are happy to make our datasets freely available following a fair use policy: you can use the data for scientific, non-commercial purposes and your own research projects. We would appreciate being kept informed about your work and the planned use of the datasets, and expect appropriate attribution (full citation). If your result, insights or the approach strongly builds upon our datasets, or the data are integral to your work, we would appreciate being offered co-authorship to one among the data providers in pertinent publications. In our view this is beneficial as it warrants proper use and correct interpretation of the datasets and -layers and helps avoiding misinterpretation of data or even tautological reasoning. If required we can also discuss and usually provide access to underlying datasets. In any case, please ask back whenever you are uncertain about the correct interpretation of the data.
