Hi all,

On April 5, 2020, we will update the Wikimedia Maps Terms of Use. Following the access limits announced in August 2020 [0] and implemented in October 2020 [1], the Wikimedia Maps service no longer supports third-party usage of Wikimedia map tiles. We are now updating the terms to reflect this policy.

This change will not affect support for Wikimedia Maps on the Wikimedia projects, tools hosted on Wikimedia Cloud Services, or other allowed Wikimedia-affiliated domains. [2]

The updated Maps Terms of Use is available here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Revised_Maps_Terms_of_Use_(March_2021)

If you have any suggestions, you can add them to the talk page: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Revised_Maps_Terms_of_Use_(March_2021)

Under our Maps Terms of Use, we've committed to providing 14 days notice before changes are made to the policy.
