Qgis End User License Agreement

QGIS is an open source geographic information system (GIS) that is licensed under the GNU General Public License. QGIS is an official project of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo). It works on Linux, Unix, Mac OSX, Windows and Android and supports many vector formats and features, grids and databases. QGIS is located on GitHub for github.com/qgis/QGIS. If you want to make fixes, you can prepare the project, make your changes, make a commit for your repository, and then create a sweater request. The development team can then verify your contribution and, if necessary, define it upstream. docs.qgis.org/2.0/en/docs/user_manual/appendices/appendices.html QGIS is published under the public license GNU (GPL) version 2 or later. The development of QGIS under this license means that you can (if you wish) check and modify the source code and ensure that you, our happy user, will always have access to a free and editable GIS program. Under the terms of this license, all plugins distributed via plugins.qgis.org (or through other repositories that may be hosted themselves) must comply with version 2 of the GPL or a larger license. In particular, the entire code contained in each plugin must be clearly and readily available as a source. We have noticed that some of the plugin authors distribute plugins that do not meet this requirement.

We ask you to take into account the fact that thousands of hours of work and significant financial expenses have been spent on the creation of QGIS by individuals and businesses. This work is done on the basis of in-kind contributions that increase the quality and capabilities of the platform for all. When you create a plugin, you only have to spend a minimum of effort to solve your specific needs, because we have done the rest of the work needed to provide an entire platform for you and our user community. This is an important value of open source: “A rising tide swims all boats”.
