[Talk-us] Microsoft Building Import for Greenville, SC

Hello Mike,

I think that you have made the same mistake as they made with the
Tampa/Clearwater, FL Microsoft building data import: The height is given in
feet and inches, but you used metre scheme (x.y) instead of x'y". An
example:

This commercial building <https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/343235673> is
never 16 meters tall as said in its height tag. (View on Mapillary
<https://www.mapillary.com/app/?lat=34.829709115470564&lng=-82.40749038763568&z=14.30535083537551&focus=photo&pKey=ozDDkY97ETw_S7WwI9xZqQ>)
If you compare further buildings, you will see that this is applicable for
all others.

I hope you still can fix it, because the managers of the Florida import
didn't.

Thanks,
Leon
