Ground floor is one storey, etc. I think its the same in the UK for OSM
its the number of storeys not the name.
In the UK a two storey house has a ground floor and a first floor. In
Canada its normally counted ground is the first floor and the storey above
is the second. I have seen office blocks with Ground, First, second etc as
well as Ground 2nd, 3rd etc.
What beats me is a split level. Is it one, two or 1.5?
