"The idea of OpenLR is to open source overlays onto GPS
databases, placing weather or traffic information on a system for
instance. The system is map-agnostic so lots of vendors can use it.
TomTom is inviting other vendors into its sandbox to enhance the
system. The code will be licensed under GPL v2. The technical
