Open Street Map is an open source community for producing mapping data. The VE can now link to this database though ModelIT to import geometry relevant to the exact location of your building project. The Open Street Map (OSM) tool imports Surrounding Buildings, Landscaping and Roads directly into your VE Project.
OSM is also used within the LEED Navigator where it uses the OSM data to perform Urban Density and Walking Distance LEED Credit assessments. 123
