Sabu Raijua building import proposal

Sabu Raijua building import

Hello mappers, I am proposing to import from Google Open Buildings dataset, sourced from Google.


This is the wiki page for my import:
This is the source dataset’s website:
The data download is available here:
This is a preview file which shows geometric data
This is a file I have prepared which shows the data after it was translated to OSM schema and JOSM validated:


I have checked that this data is compatible with the ODbL.
This data is distributed under ODbL v.1.


Dataset has beel released on May 2023 and features AI buildings recognition on Google aerial images. Import is part of South Asia v.3 release by Google. I cropped and area that contains approx. 30k buildings which should be added to the 7k already in planet.osm. Tagging schema is trivial except for a potential new tag “plus_code” that aims to give an alternative textual address based exclusively on object centroid. Conflation should be trivial too: every candidate that touches OSM building shall not be imported.

I have no relation with Google nor with the area subject of this import proposal.
