End of SHPTRANS License
Support for Canadian NTv2 datum conversion as implemented in SHPTRANS
was originally based on a program called NADCONV, which was published
as part of the Open Geographic Datastore Interface (OGDI) project.
The source code for NADCONV was licensed under the following terms:
Copyright (c) 1996 Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Canada.
Permission to use, copy, modify and distribute this software and
its documentation for any purpose and without fee is hereby
granted, provided that the above copyright notice appear in all
copies, that both the copyright notice and this permission notice
appear in supporting documentation, and that the name of Her
Majesty the Queen in Right of Canada not be used in advertising
or publicity pertaining to distribution of the software without
specific, written prior permission. Her Majesty the Queen in Right
of Canada makes no representations about the suitability of this
software for any purpose. It is provided "as is" without
or implied warranty.
The original source code for NADCONV has been enhanced in accordance
with those terms. The enhancements are part of SHPTRANS, and are
Copyright (c) 1999-2003 by Bruce Dodson.
In order to exercise rights in SHPTRANS, or in any other work
incorporates the SHPTRANS implementation of NTv2, you must do
so in a
manner that satisfies the conditions of both the NADCONV permission
notice and the SHPTRANS license.
