New Open Data for Flanders

Posted by Sanderd17 on 4 December 2015 in English (English)

Today, the GRB database was opened to the public on the Flemish Open Data license (which is compatible to ODBL).

The GRB is a massive dataset, it contains many different types of data:

  • Administrative parcels
  • Building outlines
  • Building-attachments (stairs, roofs, ...)
  • Man-made objects: bridges, chimneys, water towers,
  • landuse: railway-areas, highway-areas, residential, natural, recreational, ...
  • road-related features: bus shelters, bicycle parkings, curbs, guardrails, poles, manholes, ...
  • highway and waterway areas and center lines and even more

Of course, it will be a massive job to figure out how the relation to OSM is, and if the features can be imported in some way. But I think we'll be able to handle this.
