GIS City Generation OSM
This page shortly explains the City Generation pipeline using Open Street Maps.
The Open Street Maps pipeline consists of the following sequence of steps:
- GIS Satellite Imagery
- GIS World Heights
- GIS Water
- Open Street Maps
Open Street Maps
The OSM Data layer currently used contains several types of data:
These sublayers contain geometries that are labeled with OSM-tags. The TygronEngine uses a mapping from OSM tags to functions and land types, to convert the geometries into 3D world constructions and landss. An example of a mapping is:
Osm Data Layer: buildings
List of matching tags: "playground"
Tygron Function: Playground
An OSM building geometry containing the tag playground will be matched to a Playground Function in the Tygron Engine.
An example showing a part of Brooklyn in the OSM layer in ArcGIS-Online
Unfortunately, the used OSM layers currently only contain data from the state of New York. World coverage is still in development by ESRI.
