Hi all,

As an example as to why it is not a good idea to use this data for a bulk import have a look at this link of one small part of Lusaka ( https://sites.research.google/open-buildings/?lat=-15.390364893412949&lng=28.321204487879392&zoom=17#explore), select the hybrid option to see how out it is. This shopping centre is several years old.

As agreed with Google, I've added Google Buildings to the list of Contributors, https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Contributors#Multiple_African_countries

OSM can now use this data set. Very interesting change to see G support OSM directly.

Noting the prior discussion on quality issues on this list, expect to see this more useful in peri-urban and rural areas. The FAQ notes the importance of human review and when possible local knowledge
