Earlier this month, local mappers in Los Angeles started importing building footprints from public domain data into OpenStreetMap. This is part of the local community’s push to improve building coverage across the entire county of Los Angeles in OpenStreetMap.

Southside LA 3d Buildings

In less than 2 weeks, over 150,000 buildings were added in Southside LA.

We need your help! Visit http://labuildingsimport.com/ to take part in the import or check out MaptimeLA for upcoming mapathons.
