Automatically Extracted Buildings

The Automatically Extracted Buildings contain key information for emergency management, particularly for flood and earthquake risk analysis. The product contains nearly 1 million building footprints that were automatically extracted from 3D LiDAR data. The richness of this new data layer comes from information on height and elevation of the buildings. The coverage will be expanded as more LiDAR data becomes available over Canada.
