Building Heights: From open USGS lidar to open Overture maps

As part of the initial Overture Maps Foundation data release, we are publishing heights for over six million buildings estimated using over 34,000 km2 of open 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) lidar data from the US Geological Survey (USGS) — enabling GIS analysis and richer map visualizations.


Join this open map data project to ensure that Overture supports the features and use cases you care about!
