The last months and weeks I generated > 100,000 tiles, some multiple times, and > 32 GB of data. And we reworked US houses and churches, thanks to Pete for his help. New versions 2.0 are available for
Key features of the new versions 2.0:
- built on latest OSM data
- Microsoft building footprints included where available
- Layer 3a-details included (you may already know from X-Europe)
