Missing map attribution on the Android App

Using the android app, I can't find any mention of what data sources are being shown. I did find some of this information by searching online at https://caltopo.com/about/faq/#maps.

OpenStreetMap is released under the ODbL License and requires the following attribution notice to be provided: "© OpenStreetMap contributors".

So for both legal reasons and to help curious users (for example, I was curious where the stream data came from), it would be great to have map and data attribution available somewhere in the android app.

    Hello,

    The attribution is found at the bottom of the page when you go to change layers. It's below the list of overlays, at the very bottom.

    Thanks,
    Julie

    Attaching a screenshot from app version 0.5.9. Don't see anything in the layer menu.

    Hi,

    Apparently I was looking at the next update version of the app, where this info is displayed as I described.

    Look for that update soon, and thanks for pointing the issue out!

    Best,
    Julie
