Uh no.  It needs to be whatever the license of the original data
prescribes for derivations.  In the Open Source world, more often than
not the options for licensing derivatives are a superset as for
distributing the original (LPPL being one notable exception since it
disallows distributing derivatives with the same file names).  For the
GPL, the licensing options are basically the same (plus a few
restrictions, like startup messages on interactive programs).

It would be good to know the license of the original data, in any
