Slides from my presentation to the State of the Maps Scotland conference a the Inspace Gallery in Edinburgh on Saturday 12th October. The presentation covers 3D building tags in OpenStreetMap, creating 3D models from open data, and how architects might incorporate OpenStreetMap in their practices and how they can give back to the open data movement in return. A video of the presentation can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CklS1QkNT48

  1. 1. Introductions The Gorbals in Relief: Experiments in OpenStreetMap and Architectural Practice Duncan Bain @dncnbn duncanbain.com
  2. 2. Introductions I am Duncan Bain, a Glasgowbased architecture graduate and current MPhil researcher at the University of Edinburgh. This presentation introduces one of the projects that I have recently taken part in; the creation of community developed 3D building information and open source architectural model data, and explores where this technology might lead us to.

  4. 4. Overview of the Gorbals Project A project, initiated by MAKLab in Glasgow, to develop tools for community assets mapping and the creation of materials that could be used by community organisations and individuals in development work. An experiment in creating 3D visualisations and architectural models from open data.

  12. 12. Workflow OSM Tags building:height Sets the buildings height from ground level to top of roof. building:levels Sets the number of stories and can be used to approximate total height. roof:height Sets height from top of roof to the eaves roof:shape Sets generic roof configuration, including typical forms such as gable, hipped, mansard etc. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Simple_3D_Buildings

  26. 26. Where to take the technology? Will this concept be expanded to cover other areas? Might every buildlng on OSM one day have height and shape data? Could this data provide a tool to create cheap and open tools and materials for community groups and designers seeking to transform their local areas?

  29. 29. How to get there? What tools currently exist that offer potential routes of exploration in developing this technology? How can we develop the data required, and how can and should that data be integrated into OpenStreetMap? How can both OpenStreetMap and designers benefit from this exploration?

How can building footprints work to fit this 3D surface? Need to develop a system similar to export settings on OSM website Simple!
  41. 41. OpenStreetMap and Architects How can architects and other design professionals working in the built environment incorporate OpenStreetMap into their practices? How might OpenStreetMap be developed to better serve these practices? Where do architects fit in the open knowledge and data movement and how can they contribute?
  42. 42. OpenStreetMap and Architects OSM at an ‘architectural’ scale? Will there ever be a demand for accuracy to the scale of architectural working drawings? How to achieve accuracy at this scale using existing OSM techniques? Where to find and how to collect this data?
