City of Virginia Beach Buildings/Address Import
This project aims to import Virginia Beach, Va buildings from a city-sourced GIS file.
Import Virginia Beach's building footprints dataset to help Virginia mappers create a more effective map. Get highly accurate, city-wide address data.
Data source site: Virginia GIS office provided the building footprints and address shapeless via open data portal
ODbL Compliance verified: yes
OSM Data Files
Initial Pass at OSM files here
This import will be done in sections (block groups) with JOSM
See GitHub Repo for additional details on this import -> Virginia Beach, Va Repo
I will set source= Virginia Beach GIS
Since the OSM data is being hand-imported in manageable chunks, conflation with existing data will be handled manually in JOSM. I will prefer existing OSM data and tags over the imported data and will try to apply addressing tags from the Virginia Beach data as correctly as possible.
