A JS Library For Implementing 3D Buildings On Maps – OSM Buildings

It was very exciting to explore the cities when Google Maps had integrated 3D drawings of each building in some cities.

OSM Buildings is a JavaScript library that enables us to create a similar functionality using any mapping provider.

OSM Buildings

The library uses Leaflet mapping engine and HTML5 canvas (rather than WebGL) and requires the geometry data of the area to be visualized.

There are various free sources for such data and the library can be handy when creating such custom visualizations for a limited area.
