San Francisco building footprint data completed

Posted by lxbarth on 9 July 2014 in English (English)

We've completed work on the San Francisco building footprint dataset. We added or modified over 150,000 buildings in about 5 months of tracing with a team of three. My colleague Ruben just posted stats on the Mapbox blog. Here's an animation of all changes.

Location: Civic Center, San Francisco, San Francisco City and County, California, 94114, United States of America

Thank you. This year on Google I/O journey I used OSM for SF and it was more better than one year before!

Thank you for your job!

Good job, guys!!! Did you use any (semi)automatic tools for extracting the buildings? Or how did you do it? It seems like a lot of work!

All done by hand.

How have you doing the map animation? It's really cool
