In #sotmUS right now, #Facebook is demo-ing building detections:
@MapAmore weren't Microsoft doing that ages ago? Made the whole US dataset available IIRC.
I hope they actually review what's there before dumping in the database. Very annoying when someone retraces a building marked as demolished.
@InsertUser the process of getting Microsoft Building data to #OpenStreetMap is different from the approach now adopted by #RapiD where individual detection is accepted/rejected. This is still a demo, and I read from somewhere the detection rate is at ~60% ?
