Note: The Open Database of Educational Facilities standardises grade levels to International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) levels. For the purpose of simplification for the LODE viewer, the categories are defined as follows: Early Childhood Education : ISCED010 and/or ISCED020, Primary Education : ISCED1, Secondary Education: ISCED2 and/or ISCED3, and Post-Secondary Education: ISCED4Plus

Open Database of Buildings (ODB)
A collection of open data on buildings, primarily building footprints. The current Version (Version 2.0) contains approximately 4.4 million records compiled from various open data providers. The database is in GIS (Geographic Information System) format.
Download the ODB

Note: The building footprints presented within the LODE Viewer are for visualization only. These building footprints are a compilation from the open data sources that can be accessed at the following links: (1) LODE’s Open Database of Buildings (V2), (2) Microsoft and (3) OpenStreetMap.
