Libraries Licenses

This page lists all licenses of code SUMO depends on directly for compiling. There may be secondary references (like the C++ standard library or a particular OpenGL implementation) which are not mentioned here except for the cases where we deliver binaries for that code.

Code in the repository#

All the code which can be found under <SUMO>/src and <SUMO>/tools except for <SUMO>/src/foreign and <SUMO>/tools/contributed is since 03.10.2017 (revision 26300) licensed under EPL V2. All earlier versions were licensed under GPL V3+. The code in <SUMO>/src/foreign and <SUMO>/tools/contributed should have separate license files but we strive to list them here as well:

tcpip - TCP/IP Socket Class to communicate with other programs#

Font Stash - Text rendering in openGL#

RTree - Improved tiling for the drawing area#

  • Version: unknown (2003)
  • Modifications: syntactic sugar for gcc compilation; different footprint for "Search" due to a different callback, tests removed because they did not compile
  • License: public domain (see README.TXT)

odrSpiral - Approximating curves#

zstr - A header only C++ ZLib wrapper#

  • Version: 1.0.6
  • Modifications: only needed header files, includes fixed

Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable - Visual C++ Runtime Components (Windows only)#

Xerces-C++ - XML Parser#

FOX toolkit - GUI Widget Toolkit#

can be omitted, but sumo-gui, netedit and multithreading won't work

PROJ.4 - Cartographic Projections Library#

can be omitted, but import of geo referenced networks like OpenStreetMap won't work
