Dataset information

SpecificationsDescription
Data providerOpenStreetMap
Map featuresWater bodies, buildings, highways, towers, railways, shops, motels etc. The features are extracted based on OSM tags, which are made up of key-value pairs (highway=motorway). For more information: OSM Map Features.
Geometry typePoint
MultiPoint
LineString
MultiLineString
Polygon
MultiPolygon
File formatGeoJSON
The vector file(s) are based on the number of OSM tags and timestamps.
Coordinate systemWGS84/EPSG 4326

Good to know

The parameters time and/or time_series will only consider the end date for fetching the data. This behaviour is imposed because the changesets are not extensive within shorter periods of a few months. If a future date is supplied, the result will default to the latest available timestamp.
