OS Detail with Building Height Attribute

Overview

The Building Height Attribute is an enhancement to, and forms part of, Ordnance Survey (OS) MasterMap® Topography Layer.

Detailed Description

The dataset provides a set of height values for features classified as Buildings within OS MasterMap Topography Layer. The dataset consists of three absolute height values and two relative height values for each building polygon.

In order to utilise the Building Height Attribute a license to use OS MasterMap Topography Layer is required.

The Building Height Attribute data is available to order as an accompaniment to the OS Detail product in Promap when taken as either GML or DWG format.

When ordering OS Detail in GML format the Building Height Attribute data for the selected site will be delivered as a CSV. This allows users to import the data into their own systems.

Alternatively, users can order OS Detail as a colour DWG and receive the Building Height Attribute data as a separate 2D or 3D DWG file, as well as a CSV.

This accompanying DWG file contains the building footprint from OS MasterMap Topography Layer pre-populated with the Building Height Attribute information, and in the case of the 3D version the buildings are extruded as solid objects allowing immediate visualisation of the site.
