This template has been nominated for deletion since 15 January 2015.To discuss it, please visit the nomination page.
Do not remove this tag until the deletion nomination is closed.
Reason for the nomination: Although the linked page says that UN maps are "open source material" , it also says: "We do not permit posting of our maps into your web site (if the map is not part of a specific publication, book or article) because we revise the maps very often and want to ensure that only an updated map is posted on the Web. You can however create links to our site instead. No permission is required for the link." That is clearly not a free license because it explicitly prohibits posting a map anywhere including Commons.
|This image is a map derived from a United Nations map.
Unless stated otherwise, UN maps are to be considered in the public domain. This applies worldwide.
UN maps are, in principle, open source material and you can use them in your work or for making your own map. UN requests however that you delete the UN name, logo and reference number upon any modification to the map. Content of your map will be your responsibility. You can state in your publication, if you wish, something like: based on UN map … (map name, map number, revision number and date). See: The UN Cartographic Section (retrieved 16 November 2013)
