Haiti Pre 2010 Building Footprint

Hi all,

I am new to OpenStreetMap. I am trying to get the building footprint of Haiti (Port-Au-Prince) prior to the 2010 earthquake, does anyone know if it’s available on OpenStreetMap? And if it it, how could I access it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

OSM data of Port-au-Prince was almost non-existent before the 2010 earthquake, see this blog post that has images of OSM before and after the response mapping.

OTOH, the first mapping will be done of the buildings before the earthquake. So when you retrieve the data from around that period you should have to old building footprints I assume.

I believe that Tom Ka explains in this mail thread, how he created maps from such old data, though he did it for Poland.

Hi Escada, thank you for your response!
