The OKF form for proposing new projects helps clarifying this aspect
http://okfn.org/projects/propose/ (esp. the criteria at bottom).

Honestly, I can't see why big players should feel at danger in sharing
their methodologies, especially with regards to aerial archaeology /
remote sensing where the barrier to entrance is first and foremost money
rather than knowledge alone.

We could further discuss this idea next week in a post-summer conference
call. Who is available on 23rd around 1700 BST / 1800 CEST ?
