Additionally, the greater OSM community looks forward to your Import Plan that follows our Import Guidelines ( https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines ).

>> Open Building Data: an exploratory initiative
>> This exploratory initiative aims at enhancing the use and harmonization of open building data from government sources for the purpose of contributing to the creation of a complete, comprehensive and open database of buildings in Canada. The outcome of this exploratory work is a first version of the Open Database of Buildings (ODB), a centralized and harmonized repository of building data made available under the Open Government License - Canada.
>> This initiative originates from insights taken from the Statistics Canada pilot project on data crowdsourcing, which used OpenStreetMap as a platform for integrating data on building footprints. In addition to the possible benefits of crowdsourcing, that project highlighted the potential of integrating open data from municipal, regional, and provincial governments to meet the needs of official statistics.
>> In its current version (version 1.0), the ODB contains approximately 4.3 million building footprints.

>> Données ouvertes sur les immeubles : une initiative exploratoire
>> Cette initiative exploratoire vise à accroître l'utilisation et l'harmonisation des données ouvertes sur les immeubles provenant de sources gouvernementales en vue de contribuer à la mise en œuvre d'une base de données complète, exhaustive et ouverte sur les immeubles au Canada. Le travail exploratoire a mené à la création d'une première version de la Base de données ouverte sur les immeubles (BDOI), un référentiel centralisé et harmonisé des données sur les immeubles rendu public en vertu de la Licence du gouvernement ouvert du Canada.
>> Cette initiative est fondée sur les leçons tirées du projet pilote de Statistique Canada sur l'approche participative en matière de données, qui avait employé OpenStreetMap comme plateforme d'intégration des données sur les empreintes d'immeubles. En plus des avantages potentiels de l'approche participative, ce projet a mis en lumière la possibilité d'intégrer les données ouvertes des administrations publiques municipales, régionales et provinciales afin de répondre aux besoins en matière de statistiques officielles.
>> Dans sa version actuelle (version 1.0), la BDOI contient environ 4,3 millions d'empreintes d'immeubles.
