OpenStreetMap: Changes to building footprints in New York City area

View map

This map showcases how municipal GIS departments could leverage OpenStreetMap for more efficient change management.

The particular example shows changes to New York City building footprint data between January 1st 2012 and June 6th, 2012. It is really simple though to modify convert.py to the feature type or time period you are interested in.

Thanks to Tom for providing a great headstart.

Update map

Requires Python 2.7 and TileMill.

Assumes you would like to update the map to show any building footprints changed after 2012-01-01 in NYC area
