Puerto Rico Projects/Municipal Buildings Addresses Import
On a municipio by municipio basis, import or manually digitize buildings' footprints with addresses.
The aim of this project is to improve Puerto Rico's building footprint and physical address data by contacting municipal governments and persuading them to free their data. The newly freed data is then imported into OSM using the Community's import guidelines, providing documentation and respecting previous contributions. Before importing, the data is processed to add the appropriate OSM tags and split according to custom grids for manual import.

Buildings with Addresses and Height Tags Template
|height=*||"height in meters"|
|addr:housenumber=*||"house number if any"|
|addr:street=*||"name of street if any"|
Public Housing buildings
- Over 10,000 buildings across Puerto Rico are to be imported. Buildings will only feature the "building=residential" tag. This buildings are being identified related to public housing according to areas drawn up by "Departamento de Vivienda". There will be manual work to make sure no buildings are being duplicated and pre-existing buildings in OSM are to be kept.
Dedicated user account
The import process outlined above needs to be carried out with a dedicated user account. Follow this pattern for creating a user account name just for this project:
So for user igeopr, the name for the import account would be:
|Municipio / Jurisdiction||Data Availability||Building Footprints||With Housenumber||With Street||Import Status|
|San Juan||Free||1997 footprints||no||no||Complete|
|Island-wide Public Housing||Free||Updated footprints||no||no||Complete|
|Luquillo||Pending release of data||??||??||??||Pending|
|Carolina||Unresponsive to requests||??||??||??||??|
