allegheny-building-import

Some files that are useful for the Allegheny County building import.

allegheny-county-buildings.osm.zip

The OSM file containing all of the data I plan on importing. Be careful, it's very large.

pittsburgh.py

The Python file that I used with ogr2osm to convert the shapefile.

Data Samples

I decided to make three different samples from this dataset: one primarily urban, one suburban, and one rural.

sample-bellevue.osm

A sample of data from the import covering Bellevue, PA, a densely populated town near Pittsburgh. I chose this area because it's already exensively mapped in OSM, which makes it a little easier to evaluate the data quality.

sample-castle-shannon.osm

A sample of data from Castle Shannon, a suburban area with a mix of houses and commerical buildings.

sample-bakerstown.som

A sample from Bakerstown. Most of this sample covers a sparsely populated (for Allegheny County) area with relatively few houses.
