Automatically Extracted Buildings are now available on OpenMaps!

February 26, 2019

Natural Resources Canada is pleased to announce its new data layer on OpenMaps. The richness of this new data layer comes from information on height and elevation of the buildings that will help support Canadian governments priorities such as emergency management, particularly for flood and earthquake risk analysis. This release contains close to 1 million building footprints. We will expand this coverage as more LiDAR data becomes available over Canada.
