Understand the built environment with Building Height Attributes added to OS MasterMap.


OS MasterMap with Building Height Attributes consists of three absolute height values and two relative height values for each building polygon.The building height attribute information is created from Digital Terrain Model (DTM) and Digital Surface Models (DSM).

Absolute Height Attributes:

  • Absolute Height Minimum – the ground height value.
  • Absolute Height Max – the highest point of a building.
  • Absolute Height 2 – the height of the buildings eave height, or the lowest point at where the roof meets the vertical walls.
