AIV GRB building import

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

We're importing buildings in Flanders (Belgium) from a database called GRB, published by government agency AIV.

Do not start importing without joining the dedicated GRB channel first (Matrix-messaging-logo.png #osmbe-grb:matrix.org / irc.oftc.net #osmbe-grb). There are also other ways to contact the community if you do not like Riot or IRC.

The tools are available for everyone, with specific guidelines in order to achieve optimal quality. We are not dumping data in OSM but look at the data critically and compare with different sources to ascertain that it makes sense (the government address database CRAB, aerial imagery, street-level imagery, surveys...)
