The Open Database of Buildings
The Open Database of Buildings (ODB) is a collection of open data on buildings, primarily building footprints, originating from municipal, regional, and provincial governments. It is a centralized and harmonized repository of building data made available under the Open Government License - Canada. This exploratory initiative aims to contribute to the creation of a complete, comprehensive and open database of buildings in Canada. The current version (version 2.0) of the ODB contains approximately 4.4 million building footprints collected from seven provinces and one territory. These files are made available for download as zipped shapefiles.
