Microsoft releases more building footprint data sets
News|by James Roberts|15 January 2022
Microsoft's investment in technology across deep learning, computer vision, and AI has been applied to mapping to generate high-quality building footprint datasets.
The Bing Maps team has worked to identify map features at scale and produce up-to-date building footprints with the overall goal to add to the OpenStreetMap and MissingMaps humanitarian efforts.
Millions of building footprint datasets are available as open data under the Open Data Commons Open Database License (ODbL) and can be freely downloaded, and used under applicable licence. Currently, the locations include:
- United States of America: 129.6 million buildings
- Nigeria and Kenya: 50.5 million buildings
- South America: 44.5 million buildings
- Uganda and Tanzania: 17.9 million buildings
- Canada: 11.8 million buildings
- Australia: 11.3 million buildings
